  • This monument is not located in the centre of a square but between two main avenues. This one is located on a square and there is no pedestrian access to access it. To get there it is very difficult to cross the road. In addition there is no sign of information on the history of this monument on this small square. In conclusion, it's a nice decorative element To get there: The taxi station, "Port Royal" bus stop, line 38 "Observatory - Port Royal" or bus stop, line 83 - Station "Assas Observatory" or RER "B" "Port Royal"

  • Situated in the middle of the avenue leading to the Jardin du Luxembourg, this monument invokes Francis Garnier (1839-1873), a French officer, Inspector of Indigenous Affairs of Cochinchina and explorer. He became the leader of the mission of the Mekong Exploration Commission in the NINETEENTH century, in Southeast Asia. He was killed in defense of his mission. The monument is well executed and deserves to be appreciated.
