Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most towering monuments in the world and it stands solidly right in the middle of Charles de Gaulle Square. It was initially conceived to celebrate Napoleonian victories, but it was eventually dedicated to those who perished fighting for France between 1792 and 1815. There is the grave of one unidentified soldier died in the war, beneath the monument. This magnificent monument with 50 meters height, 45 meters width and 22 meters depth is the second biggest monument in the world. Titus arch in Rome influenced the design.
