Charming Bordeaux - - THE UNMISSABLES -

A mas­ter-piece of Euro­pean ar­chi­tec­ture, of which the stair well served as in­spi­ra­tion for the ar­chi­tect re­spon­si­ble for the Opera Garnier in Paris. Fronted by a columned por­tico with twelve stone stat­ues (nine muses ac­com­pa­nied by Min­erva, Venus, Juno), it is one of the most spec­tac­u­lar 18th cen­tury the­atres in the world today.
