Quinconces is Bordeaux’s historical center, it is named after its incredible 12-hectare meeting square “Place des Quinconces” making it the biggest square in France! The district's name comes from the formation of the trees planted on either side of its square, creating a staggered quincunx. This enormous meeting point welcomes many events and fairs all year round (funfairs, Christmas markets, circuses’, flea markets, etc.). The Quinconces train station is easily the largest connection point in the city, with tram lines B, C, and many bus routes passing through, enabling easy access to all corners of the city. The district is also the administrative, cultural, and economical hub of the wine capital! Discover the many offices, banks, high-end shops, and prestigious restaurants, and admire the bourgeois buildings dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries, home to the Bordelais elite! For leisure activities, the district boasts a large theatre, a public garden, and many areas dedicated to wine cultivation and tasting (wine from Bordeaux, of course!). If you fancy a break, you can unwind in one of the neighborhood's many terrasse bars. To summarise, this dynamic, animated, and friendly neighborhood is a key player in forming Bordeaux’s bountiful culture.
