  • A beautiful place 18 eme in the face of the Loire. It is impressive and frankly proud! The style is sober and imposing. The roofs are very visible and make the buildings more "overwhelming". The water mirror returns the inverted image and adds to this impression.

  • It is to walk and contemplate the beauty of the building from different points. Suggestion: make it from the river.

  • It is one of the must-see places in Bordeaux! My friends and I were gone at night! It was a very nice place! Too bad the water mirror wasn't there today.
