BORDEAUX AND THE AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT
Saturday 20th, Tuesday 23rd, Wednesday 24th and Friday, September 26th
If the eighteenth century is commonly called “the Age of Enlightenment” Bordeaux is its symbol. Charles-Louis de Secondat, Baron de la Brede and Montesquieu is one of its children, and Bordeaux with Saint Petersburg, Russia today have the largest number of eighteenth century buildings.
B … as Bordeaux invites you to its
1st White evening Bordeaux
Not a white night like they have in St. Petersburg, but on the occasion of European Heritage Days and the Gastronomy days, discover under new lights, elegant Bordeaux in the early evening and at nightfall.
Be dazzled by the staging of the Place Pey Berland, the gilded splendour of its Grand Theatre; rediscover the facades of Rue Sainte Catherine.
Stroll along the quays and be enchanted by the Garonne. Dream before the mirror of water and the majesty of the ancient royal site reflected in its magic pools of light…
“Those who have not lived before 1789, do not know the good life“!
Charles Maurice de Talleyrand
B … for Bordeaux invites you to a taste of the good life, with its first White evening in Bordeaux, in partnership with Le Glouton (bistronomique restaurant) and the Chapon Fin (one Michelin star).
