The Quays of Bordeaux

Do take time to stroll along the left and right banks of the Garonne! This area is steeped in history and has seen huge urban development in recent years. Some of the best views of Bordeaux can be admired from the Parc aux Angéliques on the right bank. This walk will take you across two bridges: the Pont de Pierre (1822) and the Pont Chaban Delmas lift bridge (2013). Stop for something to eat at one of the restaurants by the Gare d’Orléons (no longer in use) on the other side of the Pont de Pierre. This excellent short article provides an insight into urban development along the quays. In French, but the photos speak volumes!
