Amazon Quiz (September 7, 2021): How many Grand Avenues emerge from this building, forming a star?
The building, which is located in France's national capital Paris, is called Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile. It stands at the western end of the Champs-Elysees at the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle, formerly named Place de l'Étoile—the etoile or 'star' of the juncture formed by its twelve radiating avenues.
Paris's Arc de Triomphe was the tallest triumphal arch until the completion of the Monumento a la Revolucion in Mexico City in 1938, which is 67 meters high.
In late 2018, the Arc de Triomphe suffered acts of vandalism as part of the Yellow vests movement protests. The vandals sprayed the monument with graffiti and ransacked its small museum.
