Monumental cross, French Heritage monument to Alba la romaine

Cross made of cast iron with Virgin to brace, base stone bearing the date 1860 engraved, placed above the gate of the House of Denis Boyer, who had bequeathed this House in the town by his testament of 1859, to establish a school. For this destination, it places a nice cross over front of its main gate,... a statue of the Virgin above the door of his house, and all worked and carved partly from his hand (Archives communales Alba). Denis Boyer is certainly the author of the stone base
