Bordeaux is a breathtaking capital city of the wine world, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also classified as a "City of Art and History". It's known for its Gothic Cathedral St.-André, as well, as it many fine and contemporary art museums and 18th and 19th-century mansions. Public gardens line the curving river quays and the grand Place de la Bourse opens to the water with the Three Graces fountain at it center.
