Typical charming square

Bordeaux is one of those cities with charm around each corner. This square in the pedestrian area is beautiful with many restaurants and a fountain in the middle.

A great square to hang out at - both during the day as well as at night. With amazing architecture all around, dotted with cafés, a fountain in the middle and quaint pathways leading to other monuments and sights.

Nice square surrounded by amazing buildings. Very good choice if you want to feel the local atmosphere and to enjoy a coffee or drink or to taste local sweets or food.

Nothing much there is a history of the buildings but without a guide to explain it all it is just a plaza with buildings. go across the blvd. to the reflecting pool

Very nice square with several cafe's lining the outer walls. Next to the Hotel de Ville and St. Andre Cathedral. In the winter a temporary ice skate rink is set up for everyone to use. Other temp displays throughout the year.

I loved this place. A lot of restaurants around it. Very animated. What a delight to have a drink at one of the numerous bars. There is always something going on at this place. The place is located in the old city centre. Just be careful on which restaurant you choose. A few are tourist traps.

My wife and I did a lot of walking around Bordeaux during a recent business trip. This was a nice plaza. Didn't eat at any of the restaruants there but checked them all out.

We stayed in apartment opposite the Cathedral for 4 nights. The Place is filled with restaurants and small supermarkets. Plenty of choices of places to dine.
