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.
