0 Comments Posted by Kate

Monument aux Girondins is located on the Esplanade des Quinconces in Bourdeaux, France.

The Monument was erected from 1894 to 1909 in memory of the Girondin deputies, victims of the reign of terror during the French Revolution. At the foot of the monument are two beautiful fountains. It was dismantled during WWII to use for scrap but was recovered intact and restored in 1982.
