Frankly speaking, there is nothing special about this statue except that this is of that of a warrior from Clermont from the times of vikings and stands tall right in Jaude. The style and the colour though make us re-look at the statue. Weather conditions...More

The monument to Vercingetorix is impressive and well maintained so worth a look as you walk around town. It is located in the main square - Place de Jaude - so a decent location for a slow coffee and some people watching. There is no...More

Awesome monument to first king of the Gauls. Worth seeing. As it is in Place de Jaude it is good for people watching too as Place de Jaude is main square of Clermont.

It's the statue of Vercingetorix by Frédéric Bartholdi, on Place de Jaude. The only thing that I have learn about him is that he surrendered to Caesar in a dramatic fashion.

The statue is in honour of the 'hero' who took on Caesar and, unusually, thrashed the man from whom every Kaiser and the like have been subsequently named. Sadly, it ended in tears for the rebel hero in question who, like so many subsequently, was...More

Vercingetorix presides over Place de Jaude in Clermont on a beautiful leaping horse. He was sculpted by Bertholdi, who also sculpted the Statue of Liberty. It still amazes us that he defeated the Romans (Caesar's legions) in 52 B. C.! Poor Vercie lost his head...More
