Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Gateway To The Vineyards -

Cité Frugès in Pes­sac is a rare ex­am­ple of this unique ar­chi­tect’s work listed as a UNESCO World Her­itage Site in 2016. The ar­chi­tec­tural style was com­pletely dif­fer­ent from any other at the time (1929). The strict geo­met­ric shapes, con­crete left un­fin­ished, panoramic ter­races, and vi­brant colours had lit­tle in com­mon with the very tra­di­tional style of a city that reveres the Age of En­light­en­ment. Visites avail­able from Wed­nes­day to Sun­day. Reser­va­tion: +33(0)5.57.93.65.40
