Porte Cailhau
📍 France
Porte Cailhau, standing tall at 35 meters, is a magnificent medieval gate in Bordeaux, serving as a picturesque reminder of the city's rich past. Built in 1495 to celebrate King Charles VIII's victory at Fornovo, it marries Gothic and Renaissance architectural styles, offering a visual feast. Perfectly positioned by the River Garonne, it allows for stunning photo opportunities, especially at sunset when its stone facade glows warmly. Inside, a narrow spiral staircase leads to panoramic views of the Pont de Pierre and the Place du Palais, making it a must-visit for those keen on capturing Bordeaux's sprawling beauty from an elevated perspective. Additionally, the monument houses exhibits on its history and the city's urban development, enriching your visit with context and insight.
