Monument aux Girondins, Bordeaux, Aquitaine, France – Heroes Of Adventure

Monument aux Girondins, Bordeaux, Aquitaine, France

This imposing fountain on vast square and public-transport hub Esplanade des Quinconces is a riot of horses. It was created between 1894 and 1902 in honour of the Girondins, a group of moderate, bourgeois National Assembly deputies during the French Revolution, 22 of whom were executed in 1793 after being convicted of counter-revolutionary activities.
