“Rather impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Rather impressive memorial - quite stern and strong. Was quite touched be the energy it exudes. Directly located at the beach front.

“Sober”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

It is an ample example of the French architecture, the way they liked things straight & white. I liked it a lot. An ode to a soldier which they have raised in architecture : is really commendable. Its right on the beach near other good places( Gandhi Statue, Nehru Statue, Joan of arc & Te Promenade etc)

“Imposing structure on the Promenade.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

One cannot miss this Memorial located at one end of the Promenade - well maintained and a reminder of the colonisation of this seaside resort by the French who laid down their lives for its safety and security. Of historical importance, this memorial documents the French war fought in this little known town.

“Nothing but a statue and a garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

When I thought I would visit this place thought it would have been some sort of a big memorial with history. It is just a statue with a garden around it. It is very close to various other places in the town and so cannot be missed however nothing great.
