Bike Touring Highlight
When he died in 1896, Eugène Larrieu, owner of Château Haut-Brion, bequeathed 150,000 francs to the City of Bordeaux: he asked that a fountain be erected in honor of his father, Amédée Larrieu, former prefect of the Gironde and deputy. The City entrusts the work to two Parisian architects who have already worked a lot in the South West, Édouard Bauhain and Raymond Barbaud. The latter propose the construction of a fountain, surmounted by a carved group, allegory of the vine. Behind it is built a building - currently serving as a meeting room - decorated with Art Nouveau grilles. fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Place_Am%C3%A9d%C3%A9e-Larrieu
