Arc de Triomphe


Arc de Triomphe
The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile is a massive monument in Paris, located in Place Charles de Gaulle (formerly known as Place de l'Étoile), at the western end of the Champs-Élysées.

The monument commemorates those who died for France in the French Revolutionary (1792 to 1802) and Napoleonic Wars (1803 to 1815), and is inscribed on the inner and outer surfaces with the names of French victories in battles, and French generals. Additionally, beneath its vault, lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.

The Arc de Triomphe was until 1982, (and the completion of the Arch of Triumph in Pyongyang, North Korea), the largest triumphal arch in the world. The Arc de Triomphe is 164 feet (50 meters) high, 148 feet (45 meters) wide, and 72 feet (22 meters) deep. The large vault within it is 95.8 feet (29.2 meters) high and 48 feet (14.6 meters) wide, and the small vault is 61.3 feet (18.7 meters) high and 27.7 feet (8.4 meters) wide. In fact, it is so large, that in 1919, a French aviator, was able to fly a biplane through it!

The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile should not be confused with the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, a smaller triumphal arch, which is also in Paris(to the West of the Louvre), and which commemorates Napoleon's victories in 1805.
