The fountains are beautiful, and great material if you are into photography. There was a circus set up in the esplanade when I was there which took away from the wide open effect perhaps, but still a nice place to visit.

We arrived here by accident and it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The fountains around the bottom are remarkable, especially when you read the history of how the statues were sold and then recovered. Definitely worth a visit.

Esplanade des Quinconces is quite close to the city center and there is plenty of space to park the car. It is paying parking but it is worth not to enter more inside the city.
The fountain, the scultures, and the huge space, trees,.... and in front of the Garone river. In my opinion, it is a good place to start your visit to Bordeaux

This is the largest square in Europe. There's a very tall and large monument in the center of the square with a fountain, very impressive because of its size but other than that, there's nothing else in my personal terms of appreciation had a "Wow" element.
