  Arc de Triomphe, Paris !
by coceng

Another Paris landmark !
Arc de Triomphe or Triumph Arch...
Commisioned by Napoleon in 1806 & it was not finished until 1836.
The nearest I could be to Arc de Triomphe...
There are four huge relief sculptures at the bases of the four pillars. These commemorate The Triumph of 1810 (Cortot); Resistance , and Peace (both by Etex); and The Departure of the Volunteers, more commonly known by the name La Marseillaise (Rude)...

Address: Place Charles-de-Gaulle Etoile...
Directions: Metro Line 1, 2, RER A : Charles-de-Gaulle Etoile
