This is a well done monument. You don't often see husband and wife. As previously mentioned it's located in a nice little square right next to La Tour (The tower) and just a couple of block from the church where they were married

We came across the statues and did not know that General de Gaulle's wife was from Calais, and that they both loved the place. A herring gull seemed to approve of the convenient perching place.

It was good to see the statue of President De Gaulle & his wife. Much larger than life! The water jets nearby are great for kids.

This sculpture is a wonderful tribute to a couple that was married in Calais in 1921 at Notre Dame of Calais. The monument looks as though the couple is just out for a stroll across Place d’Armes on any night. Very well done.

Located on the edge of the town centre square, this is an excellent and realistic looking memorial situated opposite the popular local town restaurant and bars. Excellent parking in the square for visitors.

The two statues that remind you of the iconic Frenchman during world war two. Very natural pose they could be walking across the square.

Knew nothing about this statue until we came upon it. As it was on Christmas Eve virtually no shops were open so we had no choice but to have a stroll through the town. As it was Christmas there was a little fair right next...More

Large statues of president de Gaulle and his wife in the square in Calais. Good the way the statues are set in the ground with no stone block.
