Bordeaux: Street Art Guided Tour

3. Bordeaux: Street Art Guided Tour

Meet your French-speaking guide and go on a walking tour of the Chartrons, the former wine-trading quarter, coveted for its proximity with the quays of Bordeaux's port. From the quays of the Garonne to the antique dealers of Rue Notre Dame, whilst passing by the old wine storehouses, you can admire the work of renowned artists such as Clet, A-MO, Mr Poulet and Alber. This artistic exploration of the area, sprinkled with history and anecdotes, is the perfect way to (re)discover this charming area in a fun and original manner. The Chartrons started to develop north of the city-centre from the 17th century. This renowned faubourg, initially distinct from Bordeaux, became increasingly wealthy, often attracting diverse visitors. So, it's not surprising that street artists from all over seized the walls of the Chartrons, a district full of charm, stories to tell and surfaces to paint.
