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.

  • Awesome sightseeing spot. The mirror effect is above wonderfull, but when we visited we the 'mist moment' did not happen. Look it up before hand if you want to see this spectacle. A nice view over the water and you can just cross the street to be back in the middle of the city.
  • Beautiful place, aim to see it early morning or early evening as it is a sun trap! Beautiful architecture stunningly laid out with a lovely view.
