Fodor's Expert Review Porte St-Martin

Les Grands Boulevards Memorial/Monument/Tomb

This 56-foot triumphal arch, slightly smaller and younger than the neighboring Porte St-Denis, was designed in 1674 by Pierre Bullet. Louis XIV's victories at Limburg (in Flanders) and Besançon in Franche-Comté get bas-relief coverage from Martin Desjardins.
