Statue is alongside harbour in front of Town Hall to right of the water shuttle docking area. To be honest it looks more impressive from a distance but still worth a glance up close to view the intricate base relief panels. Sculpted by Louis-Joseph Daumas and inaugurated in honour of King Louis-Philippe in 1847, the figure has it’s left index finger pointing out to sea.

Toulon's navigation monument is right on the otherwise boring waterfront. It is a smart reminder of the French city's maritime root. It also forms an interesting landscape.
