WALK  “Folies Bourgeoises des Boulevards de Bordeaux” Friday 26 March at 14h

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.
