Le Monument du Centenaire (Centennial Monument)
is located on La Promenade des Anglais
in the corner of the Jardin Albert 1er.
It bears the dates 1793-1893,
and commemorates
declaring Nice a part of France.

Sculpted by Joseph Allar (1845-1925) ,
it is topped by Nikaïa,
the Greek goddess of victory and messenger of the gods.
The sculpture at the base
shows Nice embracing France.

Again, free for the frugal traveler to gaze at.

but brilliantly rendered.
Again free for the frugal traveler to see.
