The reflection in the water is beautiful and would be appreciated by anyone looking for a photo opp. But this is also an amazing view of Bordeaux. Such a beautiful, lively city in France.

One interesting fact about the reflection pond, is that it is pool water, therefore, children can play in the water. At full, it is 2 inches deep, and call fillup in minutes.

This is a volely area situated on the front of the city. You can stroll along the front of the river or walk along the restaurants and shops. The building are beautiful to look at and have lots of interesting history.

If you ever go to Bordeaux, this place is a must to go visit. Very beautiful and peaceful, nice architecture and proximity to all the shops!

Nice architecture, amazingly completed by the water mirror in front of it. Equally beautiful during the day, with bare-feet children running in the water or during the night, with young people ( probably students) dancing around. Lovely experience!

Beautiful in the evening, it was very romantic to go and take photos with your lover. You can take the tram or walk from the tourism office. If you drive, there is a parking lot just below the ground but the fees are high.

We walked the plaza and took photos, very nice to see. At night they light this up with the city, very cool.

The view may have been better but it was crowded with people standing in the water so it did not reflect anything.

Yes, the building on the left is a Free museum (Musée des Douanes), the building on the right is a government office, and the center one was the USA ambassade, but for now (for 8 years exactly) that's a restaurant, you have... More
