Main Boulevard – Public Art in Carcassonne

On the La Bastide Saint-Louis or the lower town of Carcassonne, we immediately noticed some artistic treasures.

Here are some sculptures scattered around the main boulevard, a testament of modern influence to the city. This Square is known as the Place Gambetta.

For Photographing Public Art Challenge Sculpture Saturday and 6WS


The Place Gambetta is a wonderful park and a good place to relax. The Square is surrounded by lovely buildings and a variety of statues and water features.



This is the Monument of the Resistance


This is the statue of Helena by Raymond Sudre, just outside the Musee des Beaux Arts.

And this is located at the far end of the boulevard…the Musee des Beaux Arts.

      I hope so too Ali! It is scary when things become very uncertain. Just going to Ocean Grove in Victoria has been cancelled and rebooked twice already. Thanks for liking the sculptures…

    This looks like a great place to walk around. I was in Carcassone in the 80s. Just for an afternoon to walk around the Medieval city. I should return.

    Thanks for joining!

      It was so clean and well maintained when we went in 2016. It’s a wonderful place to return to. Thanks for the comment.

    The artist had a wonderful way of capturing expressions. The swinging boy, the kids playing and jumping, the loving mother. They are all so charming. You found a real treasure this week, Teresa. Thanks for joining in.
