Chama Olímpica arde junto ao Museu do Louvre durante os Jogos de Paris

July 26, 2024 - August 11, 2024 - A chama Olímpica vai arder no Jardim das Tulherias, em frente ao
Museu do Louvre, enquanto decorrem os Jogos de Paris 2024.

There had been speculation that the flame might be placed on the Eiffel Tower, while organisers also contemplated putting it in the courtyard of the Louvre, the world's biggest museum.

The lighting of the cauldron is a key moment during the Olympics opening ceremony, signalling the formal start of the global sports extravaganza.

It was unclear if the cauldron would be lit inside the Tuileries or whether it would be transferred there after the unprecedented opening ceremony on July 26, which is set to take place on boats along the nearby river Seine, AFP said.
