Description

Marble statue.

The Prefecture, inaugurated in 1891, has a group of four statues located in the garden. Two are along Rue Servient and the other two along Rue Bonnel. The garden was previously accessible to the inhabitants of the neighborhood who could enjoy a little shade of trees and benches installed at disposal. At present, you can see the statues only from the street.
