Arc de Triomphe

12 EUR / In stock.

Make your own triumphal arch - an architectural scale model of the Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile, one of the most famous monuments in Paris.

The Arc de Triomphe stands at the centre of a dodecagonal configuration of twelve radiating avenues, including the famous Champs-Élysées. It was commissioned in 1806 after the victory at Austerlitz by Emperor Napoleon at the peak of his fortunes and honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and the Napoleonic Wars, with the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces.

The monument stands 50 metres (164 ft) in height. For nearly two centuries, it was the largest triumphal arch in existence. Following its construction, the Arc de Triomphe became the rallying point of French troops parading after successful military campaigns and for the annual Bastille Day Military Parade.
