Bordeaux Saint Jean station opened in 1898 and sits on the high speed TGV line from Paris and Lille in the north down to Biarritz on the border with Spain.
The station building is divided into three sections. The large station rooftop was built by Gustave Eiffel – architect of the world-famous tower. Since the arrival of the TGV, the station has been greatly modernised, but it retains many of its earlier features and much of its original charm.
