“It’s impossible to sleep on windy days,” says the 75-year-old resident, who prefers to name him.

A high-pitched whistle at night

When there is wind, it runs between the ax and the statue’s arm, but also between its helmet and leg, which creates a high-pitched whistle for the inhabitants at night. During the day, it would go unnoticed with ambient noise.

Facing repeated criticism, the town hall decided to dethrone Du Guesclin. Elected officials ensure he finds a new place where his famous ghost won’t wake anyone up. He dreams of a city councilman, but it’s the city council that will decide in the coming months.
