  • This one stupendously magnificent Square. One I read about and always wanted to visit and here I was soaking up the majestic ambience of this historic square. It has the old city behind it whilst fronting the Garonne River giving it an unforgettable experience. It's a short stroll from the heart of the old city or from the Gate of Burgundy. You can really feel the magnanimous history of this place overlooking the river with a spectacular view of Pont de Pierre. Absolutely a must visit if you're visiting Bordeaux. Great for families and especially in the evening when the promenade comes alive with brilliant lighting. A well deserved UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • It calls iconic place, it really is! Wonderful architecture reflecting in mirror pool, amazing. Bordeaux is called "little Paris" and it is!
