The Arc de Triomphe in Paris is said to be the biggest arch in the world, and it's certainly one of the most well-known. Its name refers to the fact that it was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806 following his victory at the Battle of Austerlitz.
The monumental edifice was finally completed in 1836 - not until after Napoleon's death. Walking towards the Arch, it appears as part of the Louvre/Place de la Concorde/La Defense axis, situated in the middle of the Place Charles-de-Gaulle and standing an imposing 49.54 m high, 44.82 m wide and 22 m deep. Built under the direction of the architect Jean-François Chalgrin, the monument has far more to offer than sheer size, owing much of its impact to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Here, beneath the Arch, the "eternal flame of remembrance" burns as a memorial to the dead. The significant figures and reliefs featured in the Arch are a further testimony to France's eventful history. From the viewing platform on the roof, visitors can enjoy the breathtaking view over the Champs-Élysées and the districts of La Défense and Etoile. Simply Astounding!
