The reflection of the palace on the grounds of Place de la Bourse creates the largest water mirror effect in the world. This is a public square, but the palace called Palais de la Bourse on the grounds showcases French classical architecture and the art of the 18th century. On either side of the central pavilion, you'll see Hôtel des Fermes and Hôtel de la Bourse. The famous "Three Graces Fountain,” representing Aglaia, Euphrosyne, and Thalia, the daughters of Zeus, stands at the center of the square.

Place de la Bourse Reviews
It is best to visit this place in Summer when the "Miroir d'eau" is open which adds a whole new dimension. The mini-Paris type feel that Bordeaux is renowned for is thanks to these sorts of areas... more »
Although we ddn't spend as much time as we wanted in Bordeaux, I loved it. It's a mini-Paris with plenty of restaurnats, shopping, attractions and of course wine :) Well worth it more »
This one stupendously magnificent Square. One I read about and always wanted to visit and here I was soaking up the majestic ambience of this historic square. It has the old city behind it whilst fronting the Garonne River giving it an unforgettable experience. It's a short stroll from the heart of the old city or from the Gate of Burgundy. You can really feel the magnanimous history of this place overlooking the river with a spectacular view of Pont de Pierre. Absolutely a must visit if you're visiting Bordeaux. Great for families and especially in the evening when the promenade comes alive with brilliant lighting. A well deserved UNESCO World Heritage site.
It calls iconic place, it really is! Wonderful architecture reflecting in mirror pool, amazing. Bordeaux is called "little Paris" and it is!
