  • In the 6th arrondissement, at the intersection of Boulevard du Montparnasse and Avenue de l'Observatoire, on Camille Julian Square, you will discover this monument paying tribute to the French explorer Françis Garnier. In bronze and created in 1898, this work is by the sculptor Denys Puech. A very nice achievement, look at the details. You can come in RER B, Port Royal station, just in front.

  • 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"

  • This statue, which is very visible from the surrounding traffic lanes, pays tribute to a heroic sailor who explored the Mekong and the Red River and died there. His ashes repatriated from Hanoi are now encased in this monument, making his burial. The monument represents The Geography, which holds an olive branch. At its feet the Seine leans over Indochina. Very well surrounded by his muses, then.
