You will most likely see this View/Building area as you explore Bordeaux. It is just near the Water Mirror and easy to get too by publilc transportation, especially the Tram. Recommended. And there are sitting areas and nice views of the Garonne right there.

An elegant square by the famous river Garonne as it passes through Bordeaux. It is best seen at night when the lovely buildings are superbly lit.

The reflection in the water is beautiful and would be appreciated by anyone looking for a photo opp. But this is also an amazing view of Bordeaux. Such a beautiful, lively city in France.

Yes, the building on the left is a Free museum (Musée des Douanes), the building on the right is a government office, and the center one was the USA ambassade, but for now (for 8 years exactly) that's a restaurant, you have... More
