Enjoyable Square in busy City....

This is a great location to people watch or just soak in the ambience of the City itself. Bring a lunch too for some rest and refreshment.

This is a very pretty square, particularly coming alive at night. The water fountain (see pic) is a nice photo as is the square but steer clear of the restaurants here as they are expensive and not good. These eateries are very touristy, they are relying on the tourist dollar so they know you won't be back. Their prices are... More

Pleasant enough square in the old part of Bordeaux with lots of restaurants around. There is an attractive fountain in the center, but with all the other attractions in Bordeaux, this place is just not that special.

we enjoyed the first spring sun and appreciated the atmosphere on the square. Feels like holiday. Just a few steps away from the riverside and Place de la Bourse

A great square to hang out at - both during the day as well as at night. With amazing architecture all around, dotted with cafés, a fountain in the middle and quaint pathways leading to other monuments and sights.

Bordeaux is one of those cities with charm around each corner. This square in the pedestrian area is beautiful with many restaurants and a fountain in the middle.

Nice square surrounded by amazing buildings. Very good choice if you want to feel the local atmosphere and to enjoy a coffee or drink or to taste local sweets or food.

Nothing much there is a history of the buildings but without a guide to explain it all it is just a plaza with buildings. go across the blvd. to the reflecting pool

Very nice square with several cafe's lining the outer walls. Next to the Hotel de Ville and St. Andre Cathedral. In the winter a temporary ice skate rink is set up for everyone to use. Other temp displays throughout the year.

I loved this place. A lot of restaurants around it. Very animated. What a delight to have a drink at one of the numerous bars. There is always something going on at this place. The place is located in the old city centre. Just be careful on which restaurant you choose. A few are tourist traps.
