Port de la Lune - The Port of Moon

UNESCO Heritage List

Visitor's Rating: (0 out of 4/Number of Votes:0)

Port de la Lune is the largest urban ensemble in the world -1810 hectares- recognized in the UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
It is the old port of Bordeaux and the name "Lune" that means in French moon comes from its location on the crescent-shaped meander of the Garonne river. The ensemble, running from the Quai de Bacalan on the north side to the Quai de Paludate on the south side, is an outstanding example of the architecture of the 18th century preserved in mint condition.
