Monument to the Insurrection and the Resistance

Monument de la ResistanceAlso called the monument to the insurrection, this pyramid-shaped monument commemorates, along with that of Barjols, the bloody events of the coup d'état led by the future Napoleon III in the department. Aups, which had become the Centre of the Red Var (Emile Zola) took up arms. The Republican Var troops fought fierce battles against those of Louis-Napoleon in the village and the surrounding area, until the final victory of the Bonapartist soldiers. The monument pays homage to the known and unknown victims who died during these battles.

Also featured on this monument are the names of those members of the resistance who died fighting against German oppression, during the Second World War.
