A key part of Bordeaux' chichi 'Golden Triangle.'
Bordeaux' top luxe shopping
If you should want to really give your credit card a major workout, the likes of Vuitton and Max Mara will help you out along this luxurious lane (now pedestrian) forming part of the so-called 'Golden Triangle' together with Cours Clémenceau and Allée de Tourny, near Place de la Comédie. The original route of the street dates back to ancient Roman times, when the legion's intendant (magistrate) kept his residence here. Always an aristocratic area, the magisterial townhouses slowly gave way to fancy showrooms displaying all manner of fashion, jewelry, footwear, and accessories.
