Toulon's harbor suffered considerable damage during World War II, so there isn't a lot of historic architecture to see. One famous remnant is on Quai Kronstadt, where the entrance to the old City Hall was grafted onto a modern building. The caryatids supporting the balcony are by Pierre Puget and date to the 17th century. Notice how they strain under the weight. Because of their pained expressions, locals refer to them as "Stomach-ache" and "Tooth-ache." In front of them is the Genius of Navigation, an 1847 bronze statue by Louis-Joseph Daumas.
