This is situated in t5he centre of Bordeux where all the buses and trams stop. A great photo opportunity and a lovely place to sit and eat (if the weather is good).

On a scorching hot August afternoon, the Esplanade offers masses of shade. Apparently the biggest open public space in Europe. So why nowhere to sit? Monument to the Girondins is spectacular.

The Square is one of the ugliest we have ever seen. Too large, nothing to do, no walls, not good of proportions, ugly surface. Nothing to eat or drink, no playground, no shadow.

a wonderful Park with many Sycamore trees planted in Rows. Be sure to look at the Fountains around the Winged Victory.

Central and convenient but not very exciting as a tourist attraction! Bike hire also available here, cafe and toilets. Apparent,y a big concert is staged here every year.

Wonderful setting hindered by the temporary tiered seating and resurfacing currently being undertaken. Amazing to see cruise ship visible beyond the trees.
