Cour Mably and Salle Capitulaire Bordeaux Reviews
Nice building with cultural exhibitions Dec 24, 2008
The cour(courtyard) Mably(from the name of the philosopher Gabriel Bonnot de Mably) and its chapterhouse(salle capitulaire) were parts of a Dominican convent built in 1684.Then it became the public library of Bordeaux and host in 1790 during the French Revolution a main political group named Les Girondins.
This building was completly restored in September 1994 and is home to all kind of exhibitions and performances;
In front stands the statue of Francisco Goya who died in Bordeaux at 82 in 1828.He was the painter of the Spanish family and his Blackpaintings prefigure the Expressionnist movement.
