Arc de Triomphe - Arch of Triumph Paris

L'arc de Triomphe - The Arch of Triumph in Paris
 

Arc de Triomphe - Paris

Arc de Triomphe - Paris

Raised over command of Napoleon Ier, the Arch of Triumph dominates the Avenue of the Champs-Elysées. Its construction began in 1806 and ended in 1836, 15 years after the Napoleon's death.

 

It is possible to reach the roof of the monument. The perspective of The Louvre - Concorde Square - Grand Arch of Defense is superb. It's one of the most beautifull panorama of Paris.

 

The site on which the monument stands is called the Place de l'étoile, because of the multicolored star built into the pavement of the roundabout.

 

The arch is 50 meters high, 45 meters wide, and 22 meters thick and is decorated with low relieves which evoke the battles of the French first Republic and Empire periods (1789-1815). Under the arch, the Unknown Soldier Tomb can be found (a soldier of the First World War).
