Miroir d’Eau- the water mirror of Bordeaux

It is one of the most important sights of the French city of Bordeaux. This is something very original and impressive, a huge flat pool that creates the effect of a mirror and artificial fog.

It is located in the city center, on the Place de la Bourse, in front of the stunning Hotel des Fermes and Hotel de la Bourse.

It is made of granite, covers an area of ​​3,450 sq.m. and the height of the water is 2 cm. What makes it so special, apart from the size of course, is the awesome reflection.

In summer, young and old take off their shoes and splash in the cool water!

Also in summer, every 15 minutes artificial fog is caused which makes the landscape even more impressive!

Depending on the time of day and the weather, the picture changes a lot, as shown in the photos.
