Main Sights in Bordeaux
Bordeaux really does have a vast collection of beautiful historic architecture and the city was recognised for this by being awarded as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
There are actually 362 historic monuments, and within the whole France, only Paris beats this number.
Among the more than three hundred monuments picking out the best is a challenge so maybe head for ones that particularly interest you.
Basilica of Saint Michel Bordeaux
There are countless churches for example, if you enjoy religious architecture, and many of these are Gothic in style.
The Basilica of Saint Michael is one example of Gothic – it’s Flamboyant Gothic built between the 14th and 16th centuries.
Saint Andre, or Bordeaux Cathedral is another major church. It was consecrated in 1096 and the structure dates from the centuries following.
