“novel site”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

A reflecting pond close to the river bank. Nothing particularly special, but a prominent site along the river walk.

“Merveilleux Miroir”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Although made by people, this looks very natural, mysterious, enchanting. It is captivating - a brilliant addition to the view of the historical Place de la Bourse, which is in itself, of course, a very beautiful sight. How wonderful a cloud of mist can be, as evidenced by people enjoying it in a variety of ways.

“So worth a visit !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

We stopped by this unusual attraction on our way out of Bordeaux and were so pleased we did. The kids had great fun cooling off in the mist (disappearing in it sometimes!) and when the waters stilled, the wonderful reflections of the lovely buildings were stunning. One of the best memories of our French holiday.
