The Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel is a triumphal arch in Paris, located in the Place du Carrousel on the site of the former Tuileries Palace. It was built between 1806 and 1808 to commemorate Napoleon’s military victories of the previous year. The more famous Arc de Triomphe de l’Étoile nearby was designed in the same year, but it took thirty years to build and is about twice the size.

This is also the spot where the Asians invaded France with their very Asian pose.

LOL.

Nearest metro station: Palais Royal Musee du Louvre
The arc is exactly opposite the Louvre museum.
