Triumphal Arch

Interesting
Erected in the late 17C, the arch is decorated with bas-reliefs commemorating the victories of Louis XIV and the major events of his reign, such as the linking of the Atlantic and Mediterranean by the Canal du Midi and the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. The arch marks the entrance to the Peyrou park, with its statue of the Sun King (1838), which replaced the one destroyed during the Revolution.
