Information

The Grande Arche de la Défense is a modern triumphal arch built at the end of the twentieth century.
Opened on 14 July 1989, the two-hundredth anniversary of the French Revolution, the Grande Arche is the symbolic monument of the business district La Défense.
Sited at the heart of France's main business district at La Défense, the enormous and impressive Grande Arche was always more than a monument to the triumph of humanitarian ideals over military glory.
One of the most recognisable landmarks in Paris – and one of the most controversial.
