  • This monument is interesting because on its base, you can see a lion unlike the base of the statue of Raspail where you can no longer see the statue, but only the base. It should be noted that in 1941, Marshal Pétain decreed the removal of statues, except kings and queens, of non-ferrous metals throughout France in order to participate in the German war effort.

  • "At Denfert-Rochereau on its pedestal up there a lion very as it should watch the cars" wrote Jacques Charpentreau this sculpture commemorates the resistance of Colonel Denfert-Rochereau during the siege of Belfort during the Franco-Prussian War (1870). It is astonishing by its size (even if it is only a "miniature" reproduction of the original one of Belfort). The sculpture contains surprises: the lion of Belfort looks towards the statue of my freedom (carved by Bartholdi too). On the sculpture there is a signature: "A Bartholdi SC-it" (Auguste Bartholdi carved me). The Medallion representing Colonel Denfert-Rochereau was added in 1920. It is a monument to see if you pass close by. There are many things to see in place Denfert-Rochereau or in the neighborhood close to the statue, shopping streets, perfect for a stroll in a Paris-village of old-fashioned movies.

  • Impressive monument for Colonel Denfert-Rochereau (Franco-Prussian War), replica of the lion statue in Belfort.
  • In the middle of the traffic still so silent. The lion king symbolise strength and resilience of the France.
