Nice architecture but otherwise a pretty standard square. Makes a good photo at night. Would pass by but not go out of my way to go to.

Went to see the Christmas light in december and the place was well decorated. Many people about in the evening and one felt safe as they were police vans near by and agents around Bordeaux in different streets. Nice to see the Police walking around. Building lit up so it gave a lovely feel to the city.

Beautiful buildings, just like the ones you see all over France and Europe. Great view and opportunity for panoramic pics

One of Bordeaux’s most beautiful squares. But no wonder as it is a creation of Ange-Jacques Gabriel, King Louis XV’s architect. The two wings of the plaza open onto the Garrone River like a giant bird. A must to visit.

An immensely beautiful open space by the river welcoming the visitor with open arms. Its centrepiece the fountain of the Three Graces cannot fail catch your attention. At night it is even more impressive when bathed in light. What a backdrop while waiting for a tram!!

I love this place, only thing is in the summer it can get a big too crowded. Saying that, it is well worth a visit. You can paddle your feet in the water mirror or sit in the grass and relax

Bordeaux has had a giant facelift. All the old, dark buildings have been cleaned up to a shinning new look!

Place de la Bourse is typical of Bordeaux - beautifully laid out and maintained. It is lovely during the day, pretty when lit up at night and beautiful when seen reflected in the miroir d'eau.

Nothing to dislike in this place, apart from the fact it's quite likely the coldest part of the city at this time of the year, due to the river just across the Quay. Nice view, nice pictures, and a good amount of restaurants nearby.

This is just amazing, the place is very unusual, and, the idea is very original for hot summer days. The reflection of the palace is very beautiful.
