Place de la Daurade

An old harbour along the Garonne River, in the background the roof of the "Basilique de la Daurade".
The name of the basilica is not a wordplay with the name of a fish called in french "dorade" or "daurade" (sea bream in english) but related to gilded mosaic which was inside the church.
In latin, the mosaic was called "deaurata".
