This will be way too easy for anyone that’s been to this man made marvel on the desert, and perhaps too hard for those that haven’t, but let’s give it a try.

Where am I?

I haven't been there, but: are they made by a certain immigrant from the northern part of Europe?
Even if yes, please don't count me anyway.

Like this:

"The figures are sentries at the entrance to Hoover Dam, part angel, part symbol of the strength of man, they are the work of a sculptor named Oskar J.W. Hansen, a Norwegian immigrant who came to the United States after some time in the merchant marines. He became a citizen and joined the Army, and after he left the service, embarked on a long career as an artist and sculptor.

As the dam was nearing completion, Hansen entered a sculpture competition for the public areas, and his design won. Soon the largest single-cast bronzes in the world (at the time) were installed on the Nevada side of what would later be called Hoover Dam."

This one may be harder, as I was off the beaten path. The town and the chateau have the same name.
