November 11th has remained a Memorial Day in France and a public holiday. Bordeaux had a massive monument built by Town Architect Jacques D’Welles in 1928-1929. It is original and little known as it stands a little way from the arch-centre of town and well worth a visit, as well as nearby St Bruno’s. The commemoration of the end of World War I takes place there in the morning.
We’ll walk down from town centre Place Gambetta, starting at 14hr.00 and back via the Mériadec gardens. Close-by city-centre restaurants will be open if you want a bite before we start.
Meeting place and time: at 14.00 on the corner of Place Gambetta and rue Nancel-Pénard in front of the Maison de la presse – tabac. If you wish to participate the please Contact Alain at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 06.44.80.43.22
