Western Paris, mixing tradition and modernity

France's Ancien Régime kings would cross western Paris in a direct line going from the Louvre Palace to Saint-Germain-en-Laye thanks to a route traced by King Henri IV. Along this royal road, many famous monuments have  lined up through time: the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs-Elysées, the Place de la Concorde obelisk, the central alley cutting through the Tuileries Gardens, the Arc du Carrousel, the Louvre Pyramid and, most recently, in 1989, the Grande Arche de la Défense. This last building rises above an extremely dynamic business area attracting some 150,000 workers and where another 20,000 people live amidst remarkable pieces of modern architecture and an open-air museum displaying over 60 works of sculpture.
