Not fully explained

The question was about "Un vraiment beau monument" which I obviously got wrong. I think I understand that beau should have been at the end, but it is not clear where vraiment shoul go. Please explain

This relates to:
Adjectives usually go AFTER nouns (adjective position) -

Bonjour Chris !

This is case 5 in the lesson: "Adjectives modified by adverbs with 2 or more syllables".
Here "beau" was nuanced by the adverb "vraiment" (really beautiful), so they go together, and because "vraiment" is a 2-syllable adverb, therefore the group adv+adj is placed after the noun.

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
