Why São Paulo?
Located in the centre of the city is the Jardin Public, a leafy park with botanical gardens. On a hot day, pack a picnic and nestle yourself beneath one of the trees in the arboretum with a book. In summer the park also hosts Bordeaux Open Air, showcasing international electronic music in a series of massive, free raves.
During WW2, Bordeaux was used by the Germans as a strategic position for their naval operations in the Atlantic. Base sous-marine, originally built to house Nazi U-boats, has now been repurposed as a modern art gallery and event space. It is not one to be missed!
Le Miroir D’Eau
Found on the Garonne’s banks, the miroir d’eau is the world’s biggest reflective water pool. In summer, the ‘mirror’ slowly fills and drains, firing a cloud of vapour out of the ground at the end of every cycle. A perfect evening spot for enjoying a bottle of local wine, alfresco, in the chaleur of the southern French sun.
Cross to the east bank and visit Darwin. This disused railway depot transformed into a modern cultural hub with a fantastic restaurant, a coffee shop serving locally roasted coffees, an organic supermarket, frequent flea-markets, street art exhibitions and even a skatepark! An perfect industrial antidote to the medieval metropole back across the waters.
