Located in Place Portalis, the city is very proud to be in possession of an authentic replica of the New York City’s Statue of Liberty in scale model. You can admire it on the Bartholdi's signature pedestal.
Inaugurated in 1913 for the first communal water system, it was donated by Anatole Ducros, a rich owner in Saint-Cyr.
It is entirely made of cast iron and it is covered by a thin golden layer.
