about Triumphal Arch of Orange
The Triumphal Arch of Orange (Arc de Triomphe d’Orange) is an Ancient Roman monumental gate built in approximately 20 AD during the reign of Augustus.
Originally built on what was via Agrippa, it is thought that the Triumphal Arch of Orange was built in honour of those who fought in the Gallic Wars, particularly the Second Legion.
Today, the Triumphal Arch of Orange is a UNESCO World Heritage site together with the nearby Roman Theatre of Orange. Extremely well preserved with its relief scenes of military events still decipherable, the Triumphal Arch of Orange is considered to be one of the most important existing relics of Roman Gaul.
