France: Paris

Place de Concorde

The oblisk in the center, which dates from Ancient Egyptian times, was imported from Luxor in Egypt in the 19th century in exchange for a clock tower, which today sits in the courtyard of Muhammad Ali's Masjid in Cairo. Considering that the clock tower never worked, the French probably got the better deal!
