  • Do not miss, a magnificent façade, a unique water mirror. A regret, the tram stop is not materialized and it is there no information on schedules, power outages etc...

  • Amazing place! If only the lights and water had come on when I was there! Nonetheless, a beautiful sight. Big open area to sit and watch the world go by!
  • My husband and I have been there 3 times. Once we went there around 12 am. In one word - MAGICAL.
  • Busy pedestrian square on the edge of the central town. The facades of the building are symmetric and very elegant. The water mirror reflects these buildings. At the center of the historic waterfront. Easy access to the major sites in town.
  • We walked to the Bourse on our self tour. Building in great shape got some pictures at the fountain. Looks great at night with lights.
  • Impressive buildings. Nice place to park and start your downtown tour.
