  • Bordeaux is surrounded by water courtesy of the Garonne River but it is not something people can swim in (too deep, no beaches) and it is not inviting as its color is more chocolate than anything...

  • Walk along the riverside promenade to view this huge shallow pool in Place Bourse. The water level indeed is only a few inches, yet remarkably, provides an excellent reflection of the two 18 century.....  more

  • Such an amazing site! You just have to wait for the perfect timing where there is no wind and the water reflection is still to capture the mirror effect. We had to visit several times just to get the perfect shot. Too bad there is some construction covering on the left side of the building but it is still okay. Amazing architecture, amazing plaza!
  • This place is great. It is both a tourist attraction and a local attraction. While we were here it was super hot in July so many families were visiting the Mirrior. If you want good pictures go in the morning at 10 to avoid the crowds.
