Used to commemorate King Louis XIV and the 1783 Treaty of Paris, which marked the independence of the United States.
This magnificent building was designed and built by Penchaud in 1823 to commemorate the victory of the French Revolution and the First French Empire, and was dedicated to the Republic, consuls, and rulers as a gift. Its inscriptions and shallow stone carvings were designed by the sculptors David Dangre and Remy, and its vault symbolizes the entrance of this ancient city. When we passed the Arc de Triomphe, it was estimated that it was going to be repaired. The surrounding area was like a construction site, but the Arc de Triomphe was still very delicate and spectacular. The location blocked by the billboard in the second picture is the Arc de Triomphe, and the surrounding construction site is enclosed.
Not only in Paris, but also in Marseilles, which is named after the road that connects Marseille and Aix, is the city's entrance. The triumphal arch, completed in 1839, is dedicated to the memory of King Louis XIV and the 1783 Treaty of Paris, which marked the independence of the United States. Its inscriptions and stone carvings are designed by sculptors David Donge and Remy.
The Arc de Triomphe is really an architectural feature of Europeans.
The Arc de Triomphe was not close to the site and was not particularly special as we were there when we were in the area under repair. The metro station was next to a neighborhood that looked quite messy and dangerous and there was no need to go out of its way to see the door O.O.
