The "Miroir d'Eau" is less than 10 years old, but located just across from a monument nearly 3 centuries old, it has become one of the city's main attractions.

The water mirror is really worth the visit easley accessible by tram or walking Would recommend that you go there out of the summer as it gets to crowded, and if you want to get some good photos I would recommend late at night

A great place for photo enthusiasts. Interesting at different times of day and night. It’s shallow, so you can walk straight across.

Beautiful picture spot in the evening. Not a far walk from the action. We were told it is better in the evening.

Nice flat and thin surface of water with fumigating waterfalls at regular intervals welcomed in hot summer days reflecting the XVII century facades of Place de la bourse opposite the road. In summer, or week ends, usually it is full of people and famillies. The...More

I wonder how much this feature cost.... the locals seem to like it and so did we but you wonder how long it's appeal will last. Clever bit of design and construction though.
