Place Royale de Bordeaux was inaugurated in 1755 with its two pavilions along the banks: the General Farm and the Bourse du Commerce. It is a monumental exception: the rectangular square, canted, Hotel Farms and the Hotel de la Bourse are constructed on either side of a central pavilion. A 200 m north on the Esplanade des Quinconces, where stood the Chateau Trompette, today is the Monument aux Girondins, a detail of which adorns the sides of a stamp to view the current Square scholarship.
