The Water Mirror

A cool new addition to a handsome old plaza.

Want to step on the clouds? Check out one of Bordeaux's coolest attractions (literally), built in the Place de la Bourse in 2006. The Miroir d'Eau is a system of fountains that lays a centimetre of water over the plaza that not just create impressive reflections of the sky above and the impressive surrounding 18th-century buildings, but in warm weather you'll find both kids and grownups playing in the water - and every so often sprinklers come on to create a refreshing mist. Designed by landscape architect Michel Corajoud, it's the largest structure of its kind, at 3,450 square metres (37,135 square feet).
