|. . . where you'll find the Colonne de Juillet,|
put here where the Bastille once stood
to commemorate the July 1830 Revolution.
It's topped by "The Spirit of Freedom"—
in one hand he holds a torch, in the other
the remains of his broken chains.
I was surprised to learn that there is a
columbarium in the base of the column that holds
the remains of 615 victims of the revolution.
