I have visited the Place de la Bourse several times and it is beautiful. In summer we cool our feet in the sprays and jets that create the mirrored lake along with all the children and adults enjoying the stunning setting and magnificent buildings. The river runs to the sea in front of you under old pretty bridges and a... More

There's one of the best spots in the city, very attractive to sight due to the Bourse palace building and... the Miroir d'Eau. The water miror is vey appealing to take photos or just to hanging up there. I think they empty it at night to avoid some incidents with the water or maybe it was just at the New... More

Our first glimpse at the Place de la Bourse was from the double decker bus of VisitoTours when a thousand plus crowd that had gathered on the square turned to wave to us. It was a rally of the Walking Dead with zombies everywhere. The next visit to the Place de la Bourse we witnessed children playing in the fountain... More

it's a pleasant walk along the river, with major scenery around. The mirror-look square looks better if no wind & rain, so you could enjoy pure reflection

The buildings in this Place are absolutely gorgeous. Could stand all day looking at them & they are magical when lit up at night. You can't miss this place if you are wandering along by the river. Stop & take in the view

This site gives you a good view of the river but when the fountains are off there is not much else to see. Great place to start a city visit but not much else to see if the fountains are not on.
