Monument aux Girondins reviews
Splendid monument composed of an elegant column at the top of which stands the Statue of Liberty, which beads its chains, and two basins decorated with bronze subjects. You can spend hours observing the beautiful faces of the characters, adults and children, and the power of the horses that make up a fascinatingly strong team. During the day, the patina of the bronze with its many shades of blue-grey and green-grey is admired, while at nightfall the lighting highlights the golden shades of the fountain.
Cool fountain that looks like an opium addict designed it after a night on the stilton. Also funny, and classically french, story about how they hid the horses during the war so the Germans wouldn't steal it but forgot where they hid it until somebody sobered up enough to remember in the mid 80s. Classic!
