The historic “Old Town” of the city of Bordeaux has another name (besides Bordeaux). Is it:

A. Port of the Moon

B. Land of Gravels

C. Chateauville

D. Claret's Field


The old town of Bordeaux (which is second only to Paris in the number of historic monuments it has) is spread out along a curve of the giant Garonne River. In 2007, this part of Bordeaux city became a UNESCO World Heritage Site, under the name Port de la Lune (Port of the Moon), a reference to the crescent shape that the river takes along the city’s banks. The crescent is also on the city’s coat of arms.
