Accompanied by our Spanish speaking guide, stop to admire the defensive gate of Bordeaux known as Tower Cailhau which was once part of the Bordeaux city wall and today opens up to one of the most vibrant and artistic districts in the city, the Saint Pierre district.

Afterwards, stride through Cours Victor-Hugo and admire the fascinating façades before setting off towards the Porte de la Grosse Cloche, one of the oldest belfries in the country which served as a gateway to the city. The monument is an extension of the Église Saint-Éloi, a church hidden away in an alley. It is the symbol of the city and is featured on the city´s coat of arms. It features the time on the tower´s ornate clock and every year you can listen to the bells ring out on New Year´s Day.

Lastly, visit the representative Pey-Berland Tower, the grandiose bell tower of Saint André´s Cathedral considered a genuine jewel of Gothic art that takes its name from a former archbishop.
