La Bastide

Charming Bordeaux - - CONTENTS -

From one bank to the other. It was in 1822 that the two banks were fi­nally con­nected with the con­struc­tion of the stone bridge, built to fa­cil­i­tate the pas­sage of the Napoleonic troops to Spain.

1 LION DE VEIL­HAN

Con­tem­po­rary sculp­ture. Made of com­pos­ite ma­te­ri­als, it is a true vis­ual land­mark at the en­trance of the Bastide district from the left bank. Sim­pli­fied and dis­pro­por­tion­ate, the lion is some­thing be­tween a toy, a de­sign ob­ject and a dec­o­ra­tive piece, chal­leng­ing the con­ven­tions of sculp­ture.
