  Esplanade des Quinconces
by barryg23

Favorite thing: The Monument aux Girondins, a memorial 'to the Girondins and the Republic', is the one monument in Bordeaux I clearly remember. It stands in a large square called Esplanade des Quinconces, overlooking the Garonne.

Fondest memory: The Esplanade was hosting a petanque competition one evening during our visit. We walked out there after dinner and sat under the stars watching the locals play.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
