Abroad, Paris tends to shadow anything else in France, that's surely unfair.
Bordeaux is partly an original piece of the 18th century, there is only very few like that. Even in the historic core of Paris, sites of that period are smaller and drowned in the later architecture, while Bordeaux keeps on highlighting it in its historic downtown.
Not sure cause I'm no expert, but I believe the site is all the more valuable because the period is regarded the greatest and most influencial of the French architecture. Specialists may confirm. That part of town will obviously be preserved, there's no way to alter its historic purpose but of course, the city keeps on developing some new stuff in other neighborhoods.
Everybody in this world is entitled to free advanced education, free healthcare and quality effective transit.
That is nothing socialist, it's just civilized.
