Bordeaux is located in the picturesque area of Southwest France and dates back to ancient times. In 1998, the city was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in honour of approximately 350 historical structures. The Cathedral of Saint Andrew, which originates from the 12th century, is located in the middle of Bordeaux. Bordeaux is affectionately known as the "Port of the Moon" because of its location on a crescent-shaped bend of the Garonne River. With its wonderful vineyards and its wine museum, La Cite du Vin, some consider the city to be the world's wine capital.
