Paris : Jeanne d’Arc near Place des Pyramides

_MG_8221-press

It took a while for us to find this place. Asking around, we were pointed to a small road on the way to Place des Pyramides. Designed by Emmanuel Fermiet in 1874, the gilded bronze statue is placed near where she was wounded during her attempt to take Paris.

Right in the center of the road divider, is the statue. Spend some time to admire this. We spent about 10 minutes here. A good On-The-Way sight.

You can come here on the way to the Lourve.
