Bordeaux is beautiful but this area by the river is particularly stunning. A must visit if you are in the area.

Photogenic place if you happen to be there in a beautiful sunrise/ sunset/ super nice sky, but the earlier you go, the less crowded it would be and the better your photos would be!

This is one of the must see if you are here in town. It is very beautiful by day, but it is really spectacular by night. Don't miss it.

Worth a visit. Although it appears in all the promos, it is quite an experience to stand before it and witness the fun of the water mirror. Give it a go, you won't regret it!

This place is a must go for all of you who love taking photos. It has different scenery from morning to night time. With the mist and water coming up from the ground, you will see a completely different view of the place. I spent days and nights here taking photos and never get tired of the place.

There is a wet square across the street from this great architectural building which reflects the lighting of the building itself. This is across the street from the river at the edge ifmthe center city (oldest area.)

After leaving a restaurant we wandered around and came across Le Mirroir (the reflecting pool) around midnight. It had been a really hot and humid evening, and padding in the cool water did just the trick to cool us down. It was really busy with young couples, families, etc., and everyone was just chilling out and having great fun. We... More
