L’ARENA, a spectacle in itself!
The new major events venue with a capacity of 11,300, Bordeaux Métropole Arena, was inaugurated in style in January with a concert by Depeche Mode. Since then the “Arena” has played host to other cultural and sporting events. Go and see it, if only just to see this giant white pebble designed by Rudy Ricciotti (architect of the MUCEM, Marseille), which looks like it’s been washed ashore by the river. www.bordeauxmetropolearena.com
