This is one of the well-known sights of Bordeaux. On a hot sunny day, it's lovely just to take off your shoes and paddle in the water or walk in the mist (the water levels will vary according to the pre-set pattern).

One of the most beautiful squares I have ever seen. Surrounded by a historical palace and the river. The tram stops just in front of the fountain.

This place is just a sight to see, but a beautiful one at that! I highly recommend seeing it in the evening when it is lit up with lights! Also open carry is legal here so bring a bottle of local wine and enjoy!

Located on the banks of the Garonne River, this building is very statuesque. Worth a visit. The Mirror is in front (but not functioning - maybe because it's the depth of winter?)
