WALK  “Folies Bourgeoises des Boulevards de Bordeaux” Monday 19 April at 14h

IMPORTANT

From March 26th, BBC walking-talking groups will not exceed 6 people.

So Alain has organised a repeat of this walk, same time and place but for Monday 19h April. Two places available.

Join us for a walk which highlights the “Middle-class architectural fancy of the Bordeaux Boulevards”.

Starting time and place: 14h at the Barrière du Médoc D tram stop on the Bordeaux side.   There is a stop for Bus 9, and also a carpark close-by.                                                  

Between 1860 and 1910, the boulevards established the limit between Bordeaux and its suburbs with a wide, tree-lined ring road with a series of’ toll gates called barrières’.

Architects sometimes indulged their fancies as this was a prize building area. Those were the days.
