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 Theâtre 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.
The atmosphere was outstanding, but the stores where the same old same old.
In essence we have an American style mall that is outdoors and carries most of the big box brands.
But none the less not to be missed while in Bordeaux
I lived in France as a foreign exchange student when I was 16 years old. Rue Saint-Catherine is definitely the place to see and be seen. It's like an outdoor mall! - which I love. But even if you don't want to shop you can walk the street, see other french people, sit down at a steet cafe and enjoy the French life. Ah - c'est magnifique!
I loved this street. It was more than a street though, it is where I hung out everyday after school. They have beautiful clothing and scarf shops. There are wonderful places to get ice cream, sandwiches, baked goods, and the best pizza in the world!!! I loved how busy the street was with people(there are no cars on this street). When I think of my time in France,Rue Ste-Catherine is what comes to mind.
I do suggest that anyone who is in the Bordeaux area make the walk down that street. It just takes a couple trips down it to make it feel like home!
We went to this shopping street during a holiday in Bordeaux after reading the positive reviews of it on yahoo but I was really disappointed. The shops aren't really anything special compared to the average high street in Britain. We only went in one shop which was the equivalent of a pound shop...The best bit was finding a McDonalds at the end of the street! It's not terrible, just not particularly anything special.
It's a perfect place for having a walk and a good shopping

It's one of the longest street in Europe and you have to walk 1 hour to go from one side to the other.There are no cars because it is only for walkers.There are lot of nice shops which are cheap especially if you visit Bordeaux during the big solds in July.At the begining of the street there is an ancinet roman arch and in the end is the Square of Victory (Place de la Victoire) with the Monument of Victory.In the street you can find everything you want especially clothes.There is two shops of the famouse chain "La Fayette".If you are going to visit Bordeaux you must also buy and taste from the delicios dessert "canele" which is specialty of Bordeaux and region.There are two boutique pastry shop on the ste-catherine which are specialized in selling this little tasty cake.
