About this place

Arc de Triomphe de l´Etoile is located in the center of the Place Charles de Gaulle, at the western end of the famous avenue Champs-Élysées. Except from being one of the most famous monuments in Paris it is 49.5 m high, which makes ti the second largest triumphal arch in the world. The construction of the arch was completed in 1833 and dedicated to the glory of the imperial armies.

Four huge relief sculptures can be seen at the bases of the pillars. The names of the major victories won during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods are engraved around the top of the arch. On the inside walls there are inscribed the names of minor victories and of 558 generals.

There is a small museum inside the arch which tells the story of its history, design and construction. Visitors can also climb to the top of the arch and enjoy the view.
