Beautiful square and lovely on a hot day when you can visit the mirror pool right across from the Place!

A good space with interesting architecture and history. Just view it as part of a walk around. Handy for Place du Parliament and Place St Pierre where ther are plenty of good restaurants.

This place is really magic during the night, because the palace behind the square is illuminated and the light is reflected in the water.

While this Palace is beautiful from the exterior there is not much else to do much admire the exterior. At night and during dusk hours there are very good photo ops with nice lighting. The mirror pond across the street can be full of people on the hot days. Try to get a good calm day after dark for photos.... More

Very beautiful spot. The building itself is very impressive, but be sure to walk over to the "mirror" by the river, since it is very lovely as well. If you have the time, stay around for a while until the mist starts to spray--so much fun! Take a walk through, and be sure to snap a few photos
