At one time, Bordeaux was a walled city, and here and there, you will find reminders of this. One in particular, the Port Cailhau, was built to celebrate King Charles VIII's victory at Fornovo, Italy. Dating back to 1494, it is in beautiful condition and looks almost the same as it did when first built.As you walk out from the city through the gate, you are presented with an expansive view to the east of the Garonne river and the park built along its bank. This is a wonderful place to have lunch or dinner under the trees and watch the street performers.
