  • The Girondists. Political Club (political parties, it is our understanding that there was no) the end of the 18 century. Wanted to change the political system, actively promoted the idea of revolution (later named the great French) included in the Government of King and the revolutionary Convention. In short, the Girondists is a powerful, albeit on different views, political force 80-90 Gg. 18 century. Collected and discussed various problems here in Bordeaux, hence their name. But with the strengthening of the revolution and involvement in it all over the broad masses of the French population, views the Girondins from advanced turned into conservative and opposition (King wanted to leave alive!) that could not but lead to rigid interspecies revolutionary combat jakobincami (progressive revolutionary majority). And how revolutionary end disputes-we know. A small part of the Girondins went into exile and, after some time, continued political activities in France, and home-made head on the guillotine (an invention of the French ...) so, revolutionary snake, once bitten itself by the tail. Therefore, this monument to put those who opened the bottle from which flew a revolutionary gin, methodically kaznivshij their liberators. In General, ordinary revolutionary history. We have had many such: Mensheviks, cadets, rump, anarchists ... ... By the way, soon century destruction of most of them. Interestingly, while we have at home, someone of them monument to this date would put? Here to century-set. This, with the triumph of the Republic in the center of the overriding ignorance and lies, tending to abundance. Yes, different from us with the French notion of reconciliation and harmony.

  • Great monument Memorial of the great exploits of Bordeaux and its people. If going on Sunday there are market very large with antiques. Eye, go with time in very broad and there are amazing things. That if there is to take a long time to browse everything. If you like something haggle mercilessly.

  • Impressive monument and water feature. Definitely one worth seeking out if you're in town, plus that whole area is just magnifique 😎
  • Nice statue, usually every once and a while you'll find next to it some sort of event (circus or a fair)
  • Monumental fountain on the Place des Quincones. The large figures were in storage for many years and now spew dramatically. The Girondins were involved in the French Revolution.
  • Monument of girondins is one of the most important places of Bordeaux. It looks amazing, especially the two fountains with such an amazing sculptures who everytime make me feel like I am in the front of Fontana di Trevi. Some tourists throw coins in those two fountains while make wishes.
  • Very beautiful and fountains add value znd elegance to the monument
