Associated to wine and the pleasures of life like no other city, Bordeaux is the kingdom of the grape. Wine bars, wine merchants and over a hundred winery castles throng all around Bordeaux. Wine is savoured and enjoyed, but is also used for health purposes through wine therapy—a spa treatment using grape extract, said to be beneficial for the body. The beautiful Baroque buildings which were once erected in the city centre to conceal the slums have made Bordeaux famous for its architecture. On top of its historic charm and presence, the city has built a modern character with brand new futuristic buildings, modern transports and a town life becoming trendier everyday. With its well organized river banks, structured squared and pedestrian streets, this city on the Garonne is a pleasure to walk through, whether it is to visit, shop or taste the French gastronomy. In Bordeaux there is always plenty to do and too much to see.
History, sights, landmarks, architecture, arts and tons of activities have turned Bordeaux into a beautiful and exciting city.
