We cannot speak about Bordeaux without speaking about la 'Place de la Comédie' with The Grand Theatre and its 12 majestic columns as well as the Grand Hotel, one of the iconic 5 star hotels in Bordeaux.
'Place de la Comédie' is a place where the main streets of Bordeaux converge, including the main shopping street 'Sainte Catherine'. Mind the trams and settle on the terrasses to enjoy the beautiful sight of la vie bordelaise going by. A huge statue of a woman’s face has been standing there since 2013. The city purchased this disturbing work of art by popular subscription, thus demonstrating its commitment to the Catalan artist whose work is now part of the city's landscape.
