At the origins of rue Achard

Rue Achard is one of the main axes of the legendary Bacalan district, known in particular for hosting the Bordeaux marina. The area became urbanized in the 18th century on swampy land. Around the residential heart of the district, activities linked to the Port de la Lune and shipyards have developed. Rue Achard has long been bordered by a wide variety of factories, from earthenware to oil mills and sugar refineries. The last one closed at the end of the 20th century, in the 1980s. The district has since experienced a great revival with the end of its maritime and industrial vocation: the redevelopment of the floating basins, the reconversion of the submarine base into place of exhibition, the enhancement of the former Vivres de la Marine and the arrival of the tram have contributed to making it a popular sector. Rue Achard, which begins a few meters from the Cité des Vins and runs along the green banks of the Garonne towards Boulevard Brandenburg, symbolizes this renewal.
