“Very Pretty”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

A great place to take a break. This is near Rue St. Catherine, so if you have been shopping you may like to take a rest with a glass of wine or a coffee in this square

“Nice sunny square with lots of cafes and restaurants”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

It is quite a nice and impressive medium sized square (it was not too big) but it does not seem that different from many nice squares that one will find in many French cities. A plus is that the area around about is very nice, attractive and atmospheric and the Place de La Bourse, the church of St Pierre and the Place de la Bourse are close by. The long pedestrianised shopping street of rue Ste Catharine is also only two short blocks away.

My individual reviews have to be seen in the following context.
We had a long weekend in Bordeaux recently and really enjoyed it. The sum of the whole experience was greater than the sum of the individual parts. The many sights in the old part of the city are quite close together. We enjoyed walking around supplemented by the excellent and very cheap tram system. We felt that none of the sights, with perhaps one or two exceptions, were outstanding. What was outstanding was the number of very interesting and worthwhile things to see in such a compact area. Apart from the individual sights, the old part of the town was both very attractive and atmospheric and even some of the more outlying areas were quite attractive.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Its a beautiful area where you can spend a lot of time esecially on a sunny day. Tourists and locals will be seen in throngs when the weather is good . You have a choice of place to eat but like all touristy sites the rices are a little steep.

“Beautiful square”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 via mobile

But one of many. It's a bit of a tourist trap but the Northern does get nice afternoon sun.

All roads lead here from this side of town.
