Right in the midst of a neighborhood with historic splendor, you have to wander to find this round steel and glass shopping mall. There is a good selection of stores, including a grocery. There are various markets that occupy the outdoor space on particular days of the week.

Find the store next to the north entrance that sells "Dunes". They are wonderful. You have to try. There's a grocery store on the lower level. You can find some good Bordeaux wines in the grocery stores from lessor known vineyards. There are public restrooms next to grocery store.

It's okay. It a small shopping mall but the neighborhood is quite luxe so that is mostly nice to visit. The mall itself is not that spectacular.

There were not many shops inside this building but it is in the right shopping neighborhood with many cafes and brasseries near by.

Putting aside the wide variety of merchandise sold this markets stands out by its beautifully preserved architectural structure. It's just a pleasant place to spend half an hour checking out the vendors, having a coffee and admiring the building.

It's a round building that looks nice from outside. Inside there are shops, cafes, and in the basement there is a Carrefour supermarket, a bakery, and few other shops and clean toilets. The price level of the shops is rather high, it is mere for looking than for buying.

Liked this city centre shopping centre with Carrefour, some food stalls & other shops. Eating places looked great for a lunch stop. Good wine bargains in Carrefour - leftovers from Xmas & new year.

If you're in the area, drop in, otherwise, don't bother. The building is lovely inside and out....sort of glitzy, so expectations were high. Not much there. The supermarket is handy for neighbourhood and lunch hour shopping. A few places to eat that are popular with workers in the area. Free WiFi. Very nice area with some high end shops.

This mall is the bullseye in the center of the "Golden Triangle" made up of three upscale shopping streets: les allees des Tourny, le cours Clemenceau, and le cours de l'Intendance. The Grands Hommes are great men of the Enlightenment whose names appear on surrounding streets. There has apparently been a market on this spot since time immemorial--or maybe just... More

This circular-shaped building houses a few retail shops but it was the branch of Carrefour downstairs that attracted us here. The store wasn’t big but much larger than the small supermarkets dotted around the old town so choice was much better and didn’t feel as busy.
