The Grande Arche de la Fraternité in the La Défense neighborhood is an excellent example of modern architecture and is home to the third-highest observation deck in Paris, 364 feet (111 meters) high. The arch was opened on July 14, 1989, to mark the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution. It also contains exhibition spaces for paintings and photography, so there’s more to admire than just the view!
