You must stop by this place if you visit Bordeaux. Definitely walk in the little streets and wonder around. I would visit at night, the lighting is beautiful.

This square and the architecture style of the buildings can be found in many cities in Europe, but Le Miroir d'eau makes it special. This is the iconic photo of Bordeaux.

A must see by day and at night. My youngest children aged 11 and 15 years, particularly enjoyed playing at the water mirror, while we enjoyed the setting - so something for everyone.

Well my rating is the same was for the water mirror itself. It's a really great place. The perspective is amazing and the river just adds to the whole scenery. My favorite place in Bordeaux!!

Just Google it: Hours The water mirror runs daily from 10h to 22h, in the following cycle: 3 minutes filling 15 minutes of mirror, drain 5 minutes and 3 minutes from fog.
I would like to know if the building is used as government offices and maybe some section is a palace and museum.
