Using a computer, tablet or smartphone, you can make your way as you please around the spaces open to visitors on four floors, including the Belvedere. Discover the secrets behind the construction of this now iconic building of Bordeaux thanks to a virtual visit enriched with multimedia content that accompanies the tour.
