We took this photo of the Square Barye while looking towards the entrance of this peaceful and little known garden in Paris, yet even by looking very carefully at the monument in this image, it is hard to see that there is a magnificent bronze sculpture adorning the top, after it had been missing for well over 50 years.

Whether it be for decoration or for drinking water, you will find that there are numerous fountains in Paris that are dotted all over the city, and this particular one we took a picture of, sometimes referred to as a Wallace Fountain, is located within the Square Barye, and provides a lovely refreshing drink of water, which we utilised to top up our water bottles.
