Highlights: The Girondins Monument is located in the Place de la Plum in Bordeaux. It was built to commemorate the members of the Girondists who were victims of the Reign of Terror. This is a must-see stop for reviewing the history of the French Revolution. The monument was built from 1894 to 1902. The proposal for the establishment of the monument originated in 1868, and was proposed by the architect Julian Gardé, the grandnephew of the Girondist Elie Gardé. In 1794, Ellie Gardé and other Girondists, and those who helped them, were guillotined there.
