This triumphal arch, erected by Napoleon to celebrate his battlefield successes of 1805, sits with aplomb in the Jardin du Carrousel , the gardens immediately next to the Louvre. The eastern counterpoint to the other Arc de Triomphe (the more famous one), it is one of several monuments that comprise the axe historique (historical axis), which terminates with the statue of Louis XIV next to the Pyramide du Louvre.
