Arc de Triomphe



The Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. The Arc de Triomphe (in English: "Triumphal Arch") is made in honour of those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars. Names of all French victories and generals are inscribed on inner and outer surfaces of the monuments.

Beneath the vault of the monument, there lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I.
