Arc de triomphe

Arc de Triomphe
The famous parisian monument is richly decorated with reliefs. Built for Nepoleon , successive governments have added their own marks to it, beneath the arch, the tomb of the unknown soldier honours the dead of 20th century wars.
Commissioned by Nepoleon in 1806, the arc de Triomphe is surrounded by 12 avenues that radiate outwards from it like the spokes of a wheel.
