  • You will find this stele at Bagatelle Park, next to the sports fields, at the intersection of the road of the mills and the road of Sevres. It takes a little searching... It is a tribute to the Brazilian aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont, died in Brazil in 1932. He spends most of his life in France, built many balloons and the first airship. In 1906, he made a demonstration flight with his amazing aircraft 'Plus-lourd-that - air' in the plain next to the Park of Bagatelle. Alberto Santos-Dumont has three patents: one of airship pilot, airplane and balloon. This stele pays tribute to this flight of 1906. It's just a simple monument on the edge of a field, which may not be worth the trip... See the attached pictures and judge for yourself.

  • Place of interest in recognizing the historical significance of Santos Dumont for aviation. There is an inscription explaining why, as another Traveller site have commented (and translated) in another assessment. :)
