  • Here is an extremely beautiful place. The buildings are sublime. It is beautiful not very beautiful. This is also similar to the place Vendôme in Paris. It seems to me that the architect must be the same. If I lived in the.... I'd be very happy.

  • The place of the stock exchange was built between 1730 and 1775, the current name given the period of Louis-Philippe I in 1848, and the fountain of the three goddess of the place was installed in 1869. Around the square are several buildings of the, including the Palace of the stock exchange, the Chamber of trades of Bordeaux and the National Museum of customs. Each summer, the artificial fountains East of the square formed "water mirrors" a few centimetres deep, which became a place where children played with water.
