Statue of Liberty

A short walk from the apartment you will find the largest Statue of Liberty in Paris. This 11.5 metre statue was a gift to France 3 years after the 1886 inauguration of the Statue of Liberty in New York. It was given by French citizens in the USA for the centenary of the Bastille revolution.
Two other copies of the Statue of Liberty can be found in Paris. One is in the Jardins du Luxembourg and the other in the Musée des Arts et Métiers
