The monument is built as a kind of tempieto – a small temple – a square ground plan formed by four pillars, covered by a saddle roof in brick, which mixes Provencal influences and the ancient architecture.

The monument is surrounded by small decorative gardens, wrought iron gates and plant fences. A long straight staircase connects the monument square, place du Petit-Puy, with rue Trécastel.

Under the monument is a crypt consisting of two rooms where gas masks from the war are stored.
