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.

Best place to enjoy the beauty of this area is to look from Water Mirror side and the reflections of the buildings in the mirror. Both cannot be treated... More

The Bourse is surely on every tourist's itinerary in Bordeaux. Have a good walk around the building and square - the detail is amazing.

We visited place de la Bourse in daylight and at night. The pictures of the fountains at night are just stunning. In the daytime the fountains and the reflecting pool across will give you some great photos.

This knocked us out!! So grand and so opulent. Really it has to be seen to be believed. 9pm on a Saturday evening, a wonderful busker playing in the square, marble tiling to make you believe you are walking through a grand hotel and beautiful lights and sculptures. Truly magnificent.
