Avenue de la Grande-Armée


Seen from the top of Arc de Triomphe 
the Grand Arch appears as the outline of a box.  
It was built in 1989 to celebrate the 
200th anniversary of the French Revolution.  


The Arc de Triomphe is a part of the straight line along which one finds:  
the Louvre, Place de la Concorde, Arc de Triomphe, 
and finally la Grande Arche de la Defense.  


The distance from the photo's vantage point 
to the Grand Arch is about 3 miles.  
The entire distance of the "perspective royale" is over 9 miles!
