Between the Quai des Chartrons and the Cours de Verdun, Portal and Saint-Louis, this quarter is named after the Carthusians who once lived here, leaving in the 15C to make way for an enormous wine depot. In the 18C, Bordeaux merchants built some beautiful private residences here. In the 19C, small working-class houses known as échoppes were built here; these buildings are now a typical feature of the outlying districts of the city.
