Note: Bordeaux was the chief town of the Celtic group named Bituriges Vivisci. It was taken by Goths and Normans and later passed to King Louis VII of France. England took control of Bordeaux between the years of 1154 and 1451. Bordeaux was one of the pilgrimage sites on route to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. French pilgrimage routes to Compostela tend to follow old Roman roads, many of which continued to be utilized as primary roads of communication during the Middle Ages. Bordeaux was a Girondist center during the French Revolution. It is famous for producing red and white wines and for its various important medieval structures.
