Entirely pedestrianized and over a kilometer long, this is the busiest shopping street in Bordeaux; it is also one of the town's oldest thoroughfares. In Roman times, it was a major north-south road. Today, it is still important, since it links the Grand Théâtre
to the Place de la Victoire
. The street has borne the same name since the 18th Century, in honor of the martyr saint whose chapel is located nearby.
