BASSINS À FLOT
A neighbourhood embedded in Bordeaux’s naval past. Refineries, shipyards, wet and dry docks replaced vineyards and marshes in the 19th century. Today, La Cité du Vin and the impressive Jacques Chaban-delmas bridge are located in an district that is currently being redeveloped by the architect Nicolas Michelin.
1 PONT JACQUES CHABAN-DELMAS
A work of true architectural prowess. The Jacques Chabandelmas Bridge is also a contemporary technical feat that brings a modern touch to the urban planning of the city. Its long flowing lines integrate into the landscape perfectly. With a height of 77 metres, it stands out as the highest lift bridge in Europe! As night falls it lights up the ‘Port of the Moon’ to the delight of all photographers. The pylons are lit in blue at high tide and green at low tide. We suggest you take a look at the bridge during a night stroll on the waterfront. Quai de Bacalan - B > La Cité du Vin
