Go with a guide, read the plaques, see the detail in the sculptures, zoom in on the Liberte. So much to absorb here. Vive la liberte!

No charge to see this monument but once you have admired the impressive sculptures and the water fountains associated with it, that's about it. Easily found near the Quinconces bus and tram terminus and a short walk from the Intercontinental Hotel.

In a very prominent position and easily viewed from all sides. It would have been nice if there had been some seating nearby. There was plenty of space for seats but none to be seen.

In the winter it's shut off so the water isn't flowing. In May right now there is no carnival or distracting backgrounds, it's just the monument and there is so much about it to see. Not one statue is alike on either side.

Definitely take a quick pitstop here to see this historical monument. It is absolutely beautiful with an interesting history. Read the placards to appreciate how lucky we are to still have this around.

Nice to see this beautiful monument with water fountains. Plenty of tourists taking photos and many coach parties passing through.

Spectacular monument in central Bordeaux City, just off the river promenade. There is a semi annual open antiques market adjacent to it.

Lovely park down by the river. On the Saturday of my visit there was an antique market taking place with lots of very interesting stalls. I even purchased a small item and had fun bartering.
