Liberty Flame, Paris

(3.2/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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."

  • When mouches ride arrived at the station «Alma Marceau» found. And left messages in various languages in the Holy Land, there were countless padlock fence. I pray to want place. Come in the evening and relaxing Eiffel Tower champagne Flash from here, was a spot just off the beaten path.

  • What a disappointment, I regularly pass that flame, and when I see all these ignorant drop flowers in tribute to the Princess, absolutely nothing to do, this flame was there before the accident that took place under the tunnel 20 years ago. This flame that's the French-American friendship.

  • 從凱旋門向著鐵塔走來,就會見到這自由之火。本真以為是紀念戴安那而設。 後來才知道這是自由女神之火。。失覺失覺。。可到此一遊。。

  • Under this place inside the tunnel where princess Diana died in a tragic car accident commonly known as Diana memorial.most of the time. You could witnesses flower bouquets here to commemorate late princess.
  • Located on top of the tunnel in which Princess Diana died. The city created a memorial for her and people have added pics and flowers for her to commemorate 19 years since her death
  • Sombre reminder of the Lady Diana tragedy. That aside, it's a regular meeting point for me and my friends, hard to miss, and the location is quite central.
  • This monument unofficially stands as a monument for Lady D's death. It is a symbol of American French relations.
  • This is the place where Princess Diana died. In early september, there are always flowers and pictures around the statue.
