As compared to esplanade close to the river, this one is not so nice. There is nothing very special about it. But you might still have a look at it when visiting the 'fontaine des girondins' which is just nearby.

Spectacular fountain and nice spacey plantain tree lined area giving way to the river. Good place for switching trams.

Walk over to the Quinconces and take some photos. It is utterly picturesque and a little awe inspiring

Throughout the city you can see the top of the column in this area. Near the main tram staion, the sculptures are amazing and the story behind them impressive. Worth a visit.

Somehow it always comes to this place, almost all buses stop there and he is very centrally located between downtown and the Garonne. It is beautiful here while away the time UDN if you're lucky takes place here something, concerts, cabaret or other events and markets. If you have looked at Bordeaux.

What makes this worth the visit is the memorial to the Girondins at one end. If you book the walking tour from the Tourist Office (and pay extra for the wine tasting if you like wine). The guide will give you the history of and explain the statues, which are truly spectacular.
