It was good to see the statue of President De Gaulle & his wife. Much larger than life! The water jets nearby are great for kids.

This sculpture is a wonderful tribute to a couple that was married in Calais in 1921 at Notre Dame of Calais. The monument looks as though the couple is just out for a stroll across Place d’Armes on any night. Very well done.

Located on the edge of the town centre square, this is an excellent and realistic looking memorial situated opposite the popular local town restaurant and bars. Excellent parking in the square for visitors.

The two statues that remind you of the iconic Frenchman during world war two. Very natural pose they could be walking across the square.

Large statues of president de Gaulle and his wife in the square in Calais. Good the way the statues are set in the ground with no stone block.

Excellent and imposing, larger than life, co-joined statues of President and Madame De Gaulle. Symbolic in that most of this part of town was destroyed in WW2.

A very good likeness of Charles De Gaulle, from a distance in twilight it could look like a couple out for a walk.
