Marshal Alphonse d’Ornano

Marshal Alphonse d’Ornano’s Tomb (1548-1610)
For his piety and his exemplary behavior during the plague of 1604-1605, he was loved by the Bordelais. Barthélemy Tremblay, the sculptor of Henri IV, represents him wearing the collar and cloak of the Order of the Holy Spirit.
