Elegant Structure

For a town hall, you couldn't ask for more, almost palatial. Easy access by tram. Adjoining a lovely square with nice cafes and right near the cathedral.

Such an impressive building, how often do you have statues at the front of your town hall? Worth a visit

It's hard to get a stand out building in Bordeaux because there are just so many of them but this one is impressive and it's very close to many of the others.

Very impressive dual partite building right near the cathedral. It apparently was a palace, and now has the appropriately elegant facade that you want with your governmental center.

When I think about Bordeaux, this structure and area immediately comes to mind! Takes my breath away every time. The entire surrounding area is lovely, everyone comes here, sooner or later. Elegant and sophisticated, well maintained. Absolutely fabulous!

The city hall itself dates back to the 1700s as a bishop's abode. It was destroyed during WWII and rebuilt. The square that it faces is a wonderful place to people watch and... More

This is another lovely city Hall. Built in the 18th century it used, at one time, to be the archbishop's residence. It was damaged a number of times, particularly in World War II, and has been renovated. It is worth a visit, and looks great in photos too!

Although we had way too much rain during 5 days in Bordeaux, we enjoyed the architecture, good wine and city hall. Worth a visit.

Lovely Building to look at.. good photo opportunity...but that's it really. Some nice cafes in the square so you can sit and gaze at it and the Cathedral.
