This is a remaining gate to a fortification wall; it would have provided entry into the city. It was also known as Porte Dauphine when King Louis XIV reigned. Tourists appreciate the interesting decorative reliefs and the cafes in the near proximity.

One of various ancient gates or arches that lead into the old parts of the city. Once inside you notice lots of cafes and shops where no one pushes you to hurray up. We lingered over coffee at one of the cafes.

Nice to see, but that's it. There's a very nice cafe adjacent (with an equally nice toilet). Good coffee.

One of many city gates dotted around Bordeaux. This was the western entrance into the city. It is worth a quick stop for a photo. Especially during sunset as the gate forms a frame for the evening sky.

This is a lovely piece of architecture in the city centre that one should go to see and have a look at, when one is in the area This seems to be a popular tourist attraction both for locals and foreign tourists alike

This is a very nice gate, but there are so many historical sights in the city that it makes difficult to differentiate them from each other.

Another worthwhile sight in this city which has so very many. Provides a good idea of the size of the old town and is located only a short walk from the Cathedral. Look it up!
