The Opera National de Bordeaux is housed in the glorious 18th century vision of the Grande Theatre de Bordeaux. Designed as a temple of the Arts and Light by Victor Louis, it filled in as the National Assembly for the French Parliament for a brief time, and now showcases some of the finest opera in France. If you can’t catch a show, the building itself is well worth a visit for its neo-classical facade, imposing Corinthian columns and grandiose main staircase. Guided tours available daily at 2:30pm, 4pm and 5:30pm.
