Bordeaux: City of Light

Серия: "-"

Bordeaux is not only the name of a worldwide, high-quality wine terroir; it has long been the central city of the French countryside. Founded in the third century B. C., Bordeaux boasts several golden periods, including its meteoric rise in the eighteenth century as the country's center for the arts. More recently, mayor Alain Juppe has driven its resurgence as a cultural and business hub. Anne Garde, a well-known artist and photographer, reveals the personality of this great city, while writer Laure Verniere evokes its past and present.
