A must visit when you are in Bordeaux. The architecture is spectacular and it is a great place to just hang out and people watch. Please note that there is nothing to actually do here, although you can wander across the road to take a picnic on the grass next to the river on a nice day

Very nice view of the bourse from the quay promenade. The reflecting pool was not flooded yet in March but still worth it.

This is a beautiful spot to stop and refresh your body and mind while visiting Bordeaux. The reflections of the beautiful buildings, the shallow water loved by tired feet and youngsters alike.

The riverfront in Bordeaux is lovely with renovated buildings and pavement cafes. Good for a stroll.

The square is a nice open space by the Garonne river. When it's sunny, like today, people come out from their houses to enjoy the weather, have a chat with friends, and appreciate the city along the river. As a tourist, I really like the place.

Wide open space in front of a majestic building facing the river. Lovely fountain in the middle, though not operating in December. Water mirror is in front of it and makes for some excellent pictures.
