This impressive monument would be minus much if the resistance had hidden the metal from the Germans. Hooray! Stand well back and it looks even more impressive. Well worth some photos when on a visit to Bordeaux

We were walking around Brodeaux and did stop by the fountain, walking distance from the river and the shopping district. Lots of water, good photo ops

We took the tram from Pessac where we were staying. Always a good way to see a city then you can choose where and when you want to get off. This was one of our stops. Fabulous fountain and monument. A must see

Very impressive sculpture but unless you’re specifically visiting fountains and monuments it’s not somewhere to had for specifically. The open space wasn’t used for anything while we visited but could be great for many things.
