Les Vivres de l’Art
Les Vivres de l’Art is situated on 4 Rue Achard. Not much of a tourist place as we hardly see load of tourists around. However, this is one unique place where they exhibit art works both indoors and outdoors. Basically, not that we are really die-hard art lovers but when we see uniqueness in artworks, we tend to stop for a look. The artworks are not only unique but complex and the size of the pieces are amazing. I am not sure if it matters when most of the artworks are outdoor except those at the other far end. The opening hours from Monday to Saturday are 10:00hrs to 18:00hrs.
Bordeaux Cathedral is situated right in front of Hôtel de Ville tram stop and beside Tour Pey Berland.
