"The Archbishop of Saint-André in Bordeaux is the most famous church here, and it is very large. It is not worse than Notre Dame de Paris. The whole building is very simple and has very complicated and exquisite sculptures. The two towering towers are its hallmarks. The interior is also magnificent. It looks very solemn and is definitely Bordeaux. One of the most worth visiting attractions."
Reasons to Recommend: St. Andrew's Cathedral is located in the urban area, opposite the city hall across the square in front of the church. The church was built in the 11th century, and the main hall is a Roman-style building. During the British era, the church was expanded due to its perceived small size. In 1137, Louis VII and Ariano da Kittenou married in this church.

"The Cancons Square in the old town of Bordeaux has a large area and is one of the largest squares in Europe. The Gironde monument in the middle of the square is very high and is a landmark here. Next to the square are statues of the thinker Montaigne and the philosopher Montesquieu. The square is lined with trees. There is also a viewing platform on the side. But the sunlight from Fa Nan was so strong, we took a quick look and left."
Reasons to Recommend: Cancons Square is located at the northern end of the old urban area, on the banks of the Garonne River, covering an area of 120,000 square kilometers and is one of the largest squares in Europe. On the west side of the square, there are monuments to members of the French Gironde faction, as well as bronze sculptures, statues of Montaigne, a thinker born in Bordeaux, and statues of the philosopher Montesquieu. The square is surrounded by rows of trees, and there is a viewing platform on the river bank, which is a good place to watch the whole square.

"The churches of St. Michel and St. Gudula have a profound connection with the Belgian royal family. Since 1830, all religious ceremonies of the royal family have been held here. When the sun sets, the cathedral glows with a different kind of brilliance in the afterglow of the setting sun. It is also a pleasure to enjoy the sunset.​"
Reasons to Recommend: 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.

"The Great Bell Gate of Bordeaux is the center of Bordeaux. It is a castle-style bell tower that looks very European medieval style. One side of the clock tower is modern Bordeaux, and the other is the ancient Bordeaux Old Town. Passing through the big clock gate, it seems to have traveled through time and space, with a different feeling."
Reasons to Recommend: The Grand Bell Gate is one of Bordeaux's famous monuments. It is located at the entrance of the Saint-Michel neighborhood and used to be the bell tower of the former Bordeaux City Hall. The Great Bell Gate consists of two 40-meter-high circular towers connected in the middle, decorated with a golden lion coat of arms. In the 12th century it was originally four round towers with only one story. It was later changed to its current form in the 15th to 17th centuries. Big bells are used to ring to warn the public in the event of a fire.

"The Peberlan Tower in Bordeaux is a medieval church building. There is still a 600-year-old bronze bell on the tower. Every ten o'clock on the hour, he will ring a loud bell, and everyone can climb the spiral staircase. Go to the top of the tower and overlook the surrounding scenery. It is really retro and beautiful."
Reasons to Recommend: The PeyBerland Tower is located on the PeyBerland Square next to the Cathedral of Bordeaux and is separated from the Cathedral. It was named after the then Archbishop PeyBerland. The tower was built between 1440 and 1500. It is a 66-meter-high Gothic building. The top of the tower is a minaret. Today, tourists can still climb the steps to the tower, which is a good place to overlook the city scenery.

"The Church of Santa Croce is a very historic building. The history of this church is very long. The Church of Santa Croce is 900 years old. Many things in the church can be visited. The internal environment is also quite large. [Interest] It's also very interesting"
Reasons to Recommend: The Church of Santa Croce was built in the 11th to 12th centuries and is a historic church building rebuilt in the 19th century. This church is not overly extravagant as a place for general church activities, but the beauty of sculpture and architecture traverses the context of history and still attracts people to visit today.

"Palais de Galen is a famous historical monument in Bordeaux. This palace has a history of more than 1,000 years. Only one wall and passage are left incomplete, but it is faintly visible in its past glory. It has now become one of the symbols of Bordeaux. It is also a must-see attraction when visiting Bordeaux. Make no mistake."
Reasons to Recommend: The Palais Garien is the surviving Gallo-Roman ruins in Bordeaux, an open-air amphitheater built in the 3rd century AD that once held 15,000 spectators, and now only a few remnants of the arches remain.
