An enjoyable place to spend a few minutes or a few hours on a warm September's afternoon. There are a lot of people enjoying the cool mist and unusual visual effects of this unique free attraction in Vieux Bordeaux.

Great place to view the river or take shots of the Bourse. Young children will enjoy removing their shoes and running through it.
