  Poitiers Statue of Liberty
by Andrew_W_K
 
 

Head north from the Place Charles de Gaul in the centre of Poitiers, down Rue des Flageolles and you come to the fairly unremarkable Place de la Liberté.
Once the scene of bloody Guillotines during the revolution the Place now contains a quirky tourist attraction in a replica Statue of Liberty cast by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi the designer of the original that stands in New York.
It is worth seeking out if you are in town just for the novelty factor alone.

Address: Place de la Liberté, Poitiers
Directions: Follow Rue des Flageolles from Place Charles de Gaul and it will take you to Place de la Liberte.
