Arc de Triomphe

Arc the Triomphe means Triumphal Arch. Standing in the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle in Paris, it honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic wars. It stands 50 metres high, and the arch is wide enough that even a small biplane has flown through it. Arc the Triomphe was inaugurated on the 29th of July 1836.
