It was built between 1806 and 1836 and is the world’s most familiar arch. This famous attraction is located at the western end of the popular Champs-Élysées, in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle. The Arc de Triomphe was built to honour those who fought for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars. The names of all the generals and those who fought, along with the wars fought, are engraved on the inner and outer surfaces of the arch. Tourists must make it a point to either take the elevator or climb the steps to the top of the arch for a breathtaking view of the area surrounding the monument, and Paris.
