Liberty Flame, Paris

(120+ reviews on the web)
Monument Tourist Spot
Located near the northern end of the Pont de l'Alma, on the Place de l'Alma, Liberty Flame is a full-sized, gold-leaf-covered replica of the new flame at the upper end of the torch carried in the hand of the Statue of Liberty in New York City since 1986. The monument is a sculpture of a flame, executed in gilded copper and supported by a pedestal of gray-and-black marble. Here, you can view the embodiment of friendly French and American relations.

The flame became also an unofficial memorial for Diana, Princess of Wales, after her death in the tunnel beneath the Pont de l'Alma. The flame became an attraction for tourists and followers of Diana, and they fly-posted the base with commemorative material. Anthropologist Guy Lesoeurs is quoted saying, "Most people who come here think this was built for her."

  • This was a famous monument before but nowadays, noone give a special attention. It is located just next to pont d'alma and is for Memorial of Princess Diana.  more »
  • It is very tired looking. Surrounded by traffic. I was very disappointed as it could have been located to a side or boulevard. It needs upkeep and better explanation too.  more »
  • Interesting monument. I didn't schedule this during my visit to Paris, but I stopped to check it while walking in Pont de l'Alma. The visit is worthy.  more »

  • Very interesting to see, the replica of the flame, from the Statue of Liberty in New York and since Princess Diana passed away near this flame, it is also used as a memorial for her...
  • It's a haunting feeling to learn after passing this sculpture that this tunnel was THAT tunnel...
  • Whilst this is not an official monument to Princess Diana, there is a certain feeling you get stood here, whether it's because I'm English and loved Princess Diana, this monument​ seems right, although would like to see an actual dedication to her in some way.
  • Replica of the Fire of the Statue of Liberty ! The view of Eiffel Tower from here is stunning !
  • Princess Diana died here, may her rest in peace!
