The Quai de la Douane is a short shore front along the Garonne river in central Bordeaux between the Quai Richelieu to the left and the Place de la Bourse to the right. Together with the complete old town this is a part of the UNESCO world heritage site Port de la Lune. The central block, which stands back from the street, is lined with restaurants using the opeing space in front. The large building to the right is part of the ensemble of the Place de la Bourse and was built 1735-1738 by Ange-Jacques Gabriel as the Hotel des Fermes (Customs Office). Today it houses the Musée national des douanes (National Museum on the History of French Customs).
The left block is the first block of the Quai Richelieu, which can be seen in the continuating panorama Quai Richelieu | Porte Cailhau .
