This is a very beautiful sculpture that by all means represents the greatness of the one represented: Carlo Magno. I wish I can come back to this spot again in the near future. As soon as this pandemic is over I will come back to Europe to see new places and visit again my favorite places, like Paris, Rome, and Talim. Also, I want to go to Berlin, Moscow, and cities in the Check Republic.

Due to the Notre Dame area being a construction site, this ornate statue of the first Holy Roman Emperor, is currently behind a fence, which is a shame, however, when works are complete, it will be possible to admire the King of the Franks up close.

The large bronze equestrian statue of Charlemagne is situated on the side of the plaza of Notre Dame. Even though it is impossible to miss, the burned-out shell of the cathedral is so mesmerizing that you can easily completely overlook it. The monument shows Charlemagne, King of the Franks, on horseback accompanied by two of his servants. It depicts him as an older man with a long beard wearing his crown and carrying a long staff or lance. The statue is the work of French sculptors Louis and Charles Rochet and was created for the Universal Exposition of 1878. Charlemagne holds an important place in European history, being the first Emperor of Western Europe around 800 AD. The statue was preserved during the German occupation of World War II because of the importance of Charlemagne in German history. What a shame about the tragic fire. I’m glad that my children and grandchildren got to visit Notre Dame before the fire. I hope it will be rebuilt and reopened better than ever, but until then, the statue is one of several interesting things to see in the area and is well worth a few minutes of your time. (PaM)

This big statue is well-made, but especially well-displayed as it is on the Parvis (the plaza) in front of Notre Dame and the Hotel Dieu. There are people around all the time and it's a great place to take a photo of the statue and the surroundings.

On the big square in front of Notre Dame you will find this noble statue of the great king. It's placed near the marker for the spot from which all distance is measured in France.
