Worth a visit... definitely worth taking a seat next to him and getting a picture taken. There are other statues and sculptures of interest nearby.

We were on a walking tour and could hardly see this monument due to the hoards of people lining up for photos. The story behind the monument was quite lovely though. Nice spot to sit -if you can get there before the tourists!

Lots of folk sit beside him and get a photo but the question is why. You have to know some of the history of the place but even then you still ask yourself - why?

Another bronze monument of a locally famous person sitting on a bench. You can sit next to him and take a selfie.
