Highlights: St. Michael's Church is located on the banks of the Garonne River at the southern end of the old city, facing Canteloup Square. This church was built in the 14th century, and it is the representative of Gothic architecture in the urban area of Bordeaux. In this church, what attracts attention is the St.Michel tower built in the 15th century and renovated in 1865. This 374-foot-high tower is the tallest Gothic spire in France. Enjoy views of the city of Bordeaux and, on a clear day, the Atlantic Ocean. The Cloche bell tower in the center of the Canteloup square in front of the church is the pointer of the city of Bordeaux.
