Grand Theater of Bordeaux
Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux (Grand Theater of Bordeaux) is a theater in that city of France inaugurated on April 17, 1780 with the work Atalía by Jean Racine, and ordered to be built by Marshal Richelieu. In 1789 the premiere of the ballet La Fille Mal Gardée took place and there Marius Petipa choreographed his first works.
It was designed by the architect Victor Louis (1731-1800), winner of the Grand Prix of Rome and who intervened in the gardens of the Palais Royal, and at the Théâtre Français in Paris. He inspired Charles Garnier in the construction of the Paris Opera, an influence that can be seen particularly in the great staircase. It is declared a historical monument of France, is 88 meters long and 47 meters wide with a room for 1,100 spectators.
In neoclassical style, it was conceived as a temple of the arts with a portico of 12 Corinthian columns supporting a frontiscipio with 12 statues: the nine muses and the goddesses Juno, Venus and Minerva. It is circumscribed within the opulent urban development of the Century of Lights.
In 1871 he served as the National Assembly of the French Parliament.
It houses 1,000 seats in its central hall. Restored in 1991, the Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux is one of the oldest wooden structures that has not needed repair.
Likewise, the Theater is today the headquarters of the Opéra National de Bordeaux, and the Ballet National de Bordeaux. It also hosted the Aquitaine Bordeaux Symphony Orchestra, until its transfer to the Bordeaux Auditorium in 2013.

Place des Quinconces
The Place des Quinconces (in Spanish, 'Plaza de los Quincunces') located in Bordeaux, France, is one of the largest squares in Europe, with an area of approximately 126,000 m².
It was drawn in 1820 at the location of the Château Trompette, with the aim of avoiding a rebellion against the city. It adopted its current form (an elongated rounded rectangle with a semicircle on one of the narrow sides) in 1816. The trees were planted in 1818 arranged in quincunces - the figure of number 5 of the dice - hence the name of the square.
The two 21-meter-high rostral columns in front of the Garonne were erected by Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau in 1829. One of them symbolizes trade, while the other symbolizes navigation. In 1858 the white marble statues of Montaigne and Montesquieu (by the sculptor Dominique Fortuné Maggesi) were added.
The main monument was erected between 1894 and 1902 in memory of the Girondins who fell victims of El Terror during the French Revolution. It consists of a large pedestal framed between two bowls, decorated with horses and bronze troops, and crowned with a large column with a statue on its top that represents the spirit of freedom.
Among the sculptures of the square are:
towards the Grand Theater: triumph of the Republic
Towards Chartrons: Concord victory
towards the river: the Tribune with the French rooster; on his right, History, and on his left, Eloquence (2 people seated).
Towards Tourny Square: the city of Bordeaux sitting on the bow of a ship with a cornucopia. To the right of the base the Dordogne river and to the left the Garonne. At the foot of the tank with horses: the Ignorance, the Lie and the Vice. The horse-fish quadriga is a representation of Happiness. The column was erected by Achille Dumilatre and Rich. The pedestal is from Corgolin. In 1943 the horses that were removed during the German occupation of France were re-directed with their restored bronze.
With the installation of the tram in 2003, the square has become the most important public transport center in the area, with two tram lines, 21 bus lines (including two night buses), an electric shuttle, and 12 bus lines. Bus that pass through Gironde, as well as a reception area to the south.

New Aquitaine Region
New Aquitaine (in French: «Nouvelle-Aquitaine») is one of the thirteen regions that, together with the overseas territories, make up the French Republic. Its capital and most populous city is Bordeaux.
It is located to the southwest of the country, bordering to the north with Pays de la Loire and Center-Loire Valley, to the east with Auvergne-Rhône-Alps, to the southeast with Occitania, to the south with the Pyrenees mountains that separate it from Spain, and to the west with the Bay of Biscay (Atlantic Ocean). With 84,061 km² it is the largest region, with 5,773,000 inhabitants. in 2012, the fourth most populous - behind the Isle of France, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Upper France - and with 69 hab / km², the fourth least densely populated, ahead of Center-Loire Valley, Burgundy-Franche-Comté and Corsica, the least densely populated.
It was created by the territorial reform of 2014 merging Aquitaine, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes, and entered into force on January 1, 2016.
It was called for a few months Aquitaine-Limousin-Poitou-Charentes and the name of New Aquitaine is official since September 28, 2016 and effective as of September 30 of the same year.
The region has 25 large urban areas among which the most important are - in addition to Bordeaux and its 1 158 431 inhabitants - Bayonne (288 359 inhabitants), Limoges (282 971 inhabitants), [6 ] Poitiers (255 831 inhabitants), Pau (240 857 inhabitants) and La Rochelle, (207 211 inhabitants), as well as eleven major centers of competitiveness. The population growth, particularly strong on the coast, makes it one of the most attractive areas of the French territory: the new region is ahead of the Isle of France and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur in terms of demographic dynamism. [10 ]
Apart from the Isle of France, New Aquitaine is the first French region in research and innovation, based on its five universities (Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Limoges, Pau and Poitiers) and several major ecoles. Europe's first agricultural region in terms of turnover, it will also be the first French region in terms of tourist jobs, especially with the presence of three of the four historic tourist centers of the French Atlantic coast (Arcachon, Biarritz and Royan), and several ski resorts in the Pyrenees (Gourette, La Pierre-Saint-Martin), the third region in terms of wealth production with a GDP amounting to 157.6 billion euros and the fifth region in terms of business creation (all sectors included).
Its economy is based mainly on agriculture and viticulture (Bordeaux and Cognac vineyards, recognized internationally), in tourism, in a thriving aeronautical and space industry, in the sectors of photography, digital and design, the parachemical industry and pharmaceutical, the financial sector (Niort is the fourth French place specialized in insurance mutuals), and industrial ceramics (Limoges). Its coastline has seen the implementation of many companies specialized in table sports, mainly surfing.
From a cultural point of view, the new region is one of the main constituent regions of the French Midday, marked by Basque, Occitan, Poitevin and Saintongesa cultures. Historically speaking, it is the indirect successor of medieval Aquitaine and will cover a large part of the former Duchy of Leonor de Aquitaine.

Great Synagogue of Bordeaux
The Great Synagogue of Bordeaux is one of the largest synagogues in Europe. It is the main place of Jewish worship in the French city of Bordeaux. It was inaugurated on September 5, 1882 and in 1998 it was declared a historical monument.
Its construction between 1877 and 1882, under the direction of architects Charles Durand and Paul Abadie, was due to the fire of a building in 1873.
The presence of a Jewish community in Bordeaux dates back several centuries of history. This community grew considerably after the promulgation of the Edict of Granada (March 31, 1492), whereby the Catholic Monarchs expelled the Jews from the crowns of Castile and Aragon. This situation led to the fact that, together with the persecution of the Inquisition, it caused many Jews to cross the Pyrenees, and constitute several communities in southern France that flourished throughout the centuries.
During the German occupation of France, the synagogue was sacked, and served as a refuge for Jews who had no chance of fleeing from Vichy France; This group, composed of about 1600 families, was deported to various concentration camps.
