  • Very nice place, with architecture that leaves you stunned by both the detail and the imposing buildings. This square faces the water mirror and is facing the Garonne.

  • Beautiful square open on the Garonna River, inside the statue of the 3 Veneri and in front of the square, with its 3,450 square meters, extends the largest body of water in the world (miroir d'eau). Recommended in the evening for the wonderful reflection on the body of water.
