Arc de Triomphe - Paris, France

The Arc de Triomphe, the world's largest triumphal arch -- measuring 164 feet high by 148 feet wide -- rises at the west end of the famous Champs-Élysées in Paris.

 The triumphal arch honors those who fought for France, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars. On the inside and the top of the arc there are all of the names of generals and wars fought. Underneath is the tomb of the unknown soldier from World War I.
