fairly disappointing considering it's number 1 in tripadvisor - a bit like the mermaid in Copenhagen in terms of interest / attraction

Unusual way to use water as a mirror in the central part of the city surrounded by the beautiful buildings . Interesting change from fog like surface to still surface of water. Children and even adults can enjoy it.

It's a wonderful place on the Garonne river. If you do a overnight visit in Bordeaux, just visit the "miroir" at night. You won't regret!

This place still projects the power that inspired it. A wonderful breathtaking demonstration of high style and the wealth that underpinned it. A must see in Bordeaux. Don't forget the interpretive centre which is very useful at the start of your stay.

1. Miroir des Quais 2. Bordeaux’s most beautiful square 3. The area is covered with a thin layer of water, which gives it its mirroring effect. 4. It is combination of water and mist effect. 5. Amazing kids zone especially in summers. 6. Different structure to see in France .

We were in Bordeaux during a heatwave and this was a great place to cool down for everybody from kids to adults of all ages. It also allowed for some great photo opportunities. A must do if you are in Bordeaux.

Between Bourse and river, a large sheet of water that reflects the Bourse. Great playground for all ages. Toddlers splash, young children splatter, older people slosh through the water. Happy atmosphere.

The Place is very imposing (albeit not quite square), with a fine statue of the Three Graces in the middle. It also includes the National Customs Museum.
