A great place for photo enthusiasts. Interesting at different times of day and night. It’s shallow, so you can walk straight across.

Located right across from historic customs house building and by the river the reflecting pool is sight to see. Rises and lowers and on sunny or cloudy days a nice re-elections if the buildings.

We did a walking tour and stopped here to see the scenery. It was a chilly day so we did not stay very long. There many visitors. Some even bikes over this water fountain.

I wonder how much this feature cost.... the locals seem to like it and so did we but you wonder how long it's appeal will last. Clever bit of design and construction though.

I did not expect to be impressed, but I loved this clever water feature. It was so cool! People of all ages delighted in the burbling water, the mist, the fog, and then it all clearing away, just to cycle back again. Great photo opportunities....More

The world's largest reflecting pool covers over 3,000 m3. Excellent spot for a quick cooldown on a hot summer day. A very busy city hangout especially for children in the summer holidays. Good with kids.

Tram or Uber. Trams in Bordeaux are brilliant. Uber means not lines and when you get into the station there are frequently many people also lining up for taxis.
