Hotel des Invalides' gilded dome emanates majestically from the deep end of its vast esplanade lawns. Commissioned by Louis XIV in the 1670s as a respite for 4000 invalides (wounded or disabled war veterans) it stands as one of the most prestigious monuments in Paris and as a testament to Louis XIV and Napoléon – the latter's remains lie in the Tombeau de Napoléon [Napolean's Tomb]. Still functioning as a hospice for injured or disabled war veterans, its massive complex also houses the Musée de l'Armée, Musée des Plans Relief and Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération along with two churches.
Where they keep Napoleon’s Tomb. Pretty snazzy. Feels like all roads lead here so might as well go.
This is a complex of buildings containing museums and monuments, all relating to the military history of France.

Один из множества памятников Парижа! В череде себе подобных немного незаслуженно теряется, но тем не менее стоит посещения!
This monument is 2 metro stops or a beautiful 20 minute walk from Bis2... let the weather be your guide!
