Beautiful architecture and history. Be aware of the closing times because they cut off tours the last 45min before closing.
This surprised me!! I did not have it on my list of things to do in Paris but I’m so glad we decided to go. It was so beautiful and interesting! There are tombs from some of the most famous French people here and the structure itself is amazing! Definitely worth a stop.
I think the main attraction at the Pantheon is the famous Foucault pendulum. But!!! the crypt holds graves of famous people such as Marie Curie, Emile Zola, Voltaire, Victor Hugo and others. The architecture itself is beautiful. The French Pantheon was built in the Neoclassical style. Don't miss it!
A place for science and history fans.
Located in the Latin Quarter this was originally a church dedicated to St. Genevieve. Today, this impressive building combines its liturgical function with its role of being a burial place for famous historical Frenchmen such as Voltaire, Hugo, Braille and Curie.
A grand and stately presence on Paris' Left Bank, Panthéon is the final destination of France's crème de la crème. Great thinkers and writers such as Voltaire, Rousseau, Hugo and Zola are enshrined here as a tribute to the nation's great men. In 1995 its first female resident – two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie entered the frame. New members are seldom introduced. Inside this domed, neo-classical structure are elegant Greek columns, 19th century murals and steep spiral stairs leading to a reproduction of the Foucault pendulum (a device that demonstrated the rotation of the earth) suspended from a cupola.
