L'arc du Carrousel

The L'arc du Carrousel is at the far end of the Jardins des Tuileries near the Louvre Museum. The miniature Arc de Triomphe with horses on top built between 1806-1808 by Napoleon I to commemorate his military victories of 1805. The horses are not the original, those were plundered from Saint Mark's Cathedral in Venice and then given back. The horses depict Peace riding in a triumphal chariot.

The Da Vinci Code is incorrect: Musée du Jeu de Paume, Pompidou Center, Musée d'Orsay and Louvre Museum are not visible from the the L'arc du Carrousel. Only the Louvre Museum is easily visible. The Musée d'Orsay and the Musée du Jeu de Paume are partly visible, if you know where to look from. The Pompidou Center is not visible.

The L'arc du Carrousel is located in the 1st district of Paris metro stop stop Palais-Royal/Musée du Louvre
