There is a small park at the intersection of Le Méridien and McDonald's. It is close to the waterfront and you can see this towering monument just a short walk along the British Promenade. The white stele body is very tall due to the surrounding green belt, and the statues on it will occasionally attract a lot of pigeons to embellish it.
The Monument du Centenaire (Monument du Centenaire) stands in the garden of Albert I. It was built to commemorate the French decree of Nice issued on February 4, 1793. The monument was built in 1896. At the top of the monument is a statue of the goddess of victory with wings. She holds a hip flask in one hand and a gold cup in the other. There is a group of statues on the pedestal, which symbolizes Nice's return to the embrace of France. In 1860, Napoleon III (1803-1873) signed a treaty with the Kingdom of Sardinia (Kingdom of Sardinia), and Nice again belonged to France, so the original three numbers on the monument: 1793, 1893 and 1860. As a centennial monument, the fourth number 1960 was added to the 1960. The surrounding scenery is beautiful.
Very nice place, worth a visit. I like it very much.
The tour guide must be detailed, otherwise it will be confused
