“Sainte-Catherine” is the spine of Bordeaux, connecting Place de la Comédie to Place de la Victoire.
The street is 1.2km long, and is lined with shops, many of which are French high street classics, such as Galerie Lafayette. It runs uninterrupted- except for two major intersections- from the “Victoire” quarter to the opulent square that is dominated by the grand théâtre, passing by Place Saint Projet.
If you’re ever lost, you can always find your way by heading towards this street or to the quays.
Promenade Sainte Catherine is a recent addition to the already numerous shopping options, with famous European and international brands.
It’s best to avoid the street on Saturdays, unless you want to join the throng of shoppers! That said, the sight of the hundreds of shoppers is something to behold!
It’s hard to avoid this street!
