6 PLACE DU PARLEMENT

Cre­ated in 1754 by de­cree of Bailiff Tourny, it was des­tined to host the royal mar­ket­place. The name evokes the Bor­deaux Par­lia­ment which was founded in 1462 and dis­solved in 1790. To­day, restau­rant ter­races and ice cream par­lours share this el­e­gant square, which fea­tures a foun­tain by Gar­ros (1865).
