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.

  • Everything was fantastic, couldn't pick a favourite. Great things to see and do. Amazing restaurants and the weather was lovely.

  • This is often hyped as a miracle of urban rehab, but it is truly nothing more that a nice place to walk by as you cross-cross the city.

  • Amazing place to visit, I strongly recommend visiting at night. The view is amazing and there is a pool of water. You can take your shoes off and walk in the water in the middle of the night, enjoying the view of the place and the canal right behind you. Unforgettable.
  • Great place to see everyone with a big smile on their face. What a great idea. The water is probably only 5cm.deep but very effective. The size of it makes it very impressive.
