It's a nice monument and you can't miss it, it's at the end of the main street. If you turn left, you will end up on the pass overlooking the town, which is very nice.

The gardens are well kept, and visiting the monument should be on your "to do" list... but: the male attendant at the ticket office can't be bothered to greet visitor's, or even to just smile. Futher, the notice on the wall says the gardens closes at 17:00, yet at 16:50 (and there is nothing wrong with my watch!) we were called at (from quite a distance) and gestures made that he was closing now, we must hurry and leave. So we hurried towards the gate where the man was now standing, back pack on his back and all ready to go, once again no "thanks for visiting", no "good bye", no "hope you enjoyed your visit"... just shut the gate behind us.

Free and worth a stop for a brief walk through the gardens. Easy to find and easy to access although I am not sure how close wheelchair users can get. Check out the description on Wikipedia.

This is a fairly large, grey-stone memorial with a female on a globe in front. It at the bottom of the road on the outskirts of town about 10 minutes from hotel. It is situated in a nice flower-filled park in full view from the road but there is a small fee to enter gardens.
