At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The heart of the city.

Covering a 12 hectare surface area, the Place des Quinconces is the largest public square in Europe. Situated in the heart of Bordeaux, this space has survived the housing boom and retains its authenticity with trees planted in "quincunxes," hence the name of the square.

At the centre of this impressive development is the monument to the Girondins and the famous fountains. To the sides, the place is guarded by the benevolent gaze of two of the greatest French intellectuals, Montaigne and Montesquieu, with Domenico Maggesi's statues installed in 1858.

The Place des Quinconces has always hosted fairs, flea markets and been the scene of celebrations on other Bordeaux holidays. So it is quite natural that the Girondins de Bordeaux football supporters come here to celebrate their team's victories.
