All of Paris from panoramic terrace
The pedestals here are decorated with four allegorical high reliefs by the sculptors Cortot, Etex, and Rude. Facing the Champs-Élysées is Rude’s Le Départ des Volontaires, it is known as 'La Marseillaise.' Inside, at the top of the 234 steps, the sources that inspired the monument are presented on giant screens, as is the history of its construction. The sculptures and friezes, which are hard to see from the ground, can be admired in detail.
