THE CORDELIERS CLOISTER
It is a magnificent remain of the second monastery established by the Franciscan monks in the 14th century, as the first one, located out of the city walls, had been destroyed. The complex included a church, a cloister, a garden, a cellar, a vat room, a cave, a courtyard and accommodation. The last monks were expelled during the French Revolution and the Convent, in a very poor condition, was sold as a national property in 1791. In this true peaceful and relaxing place, you can today taste « Crémant de Bordeaux », a sparkling wine elaborated in the cloister’s underground cellars.
