At the Pantheon in Paris some of the most distinguished French luminaries are buried. This includes Voltaire, the Curies and Victor Hugo. The mausoleum features a neoclassical style, with a facade designed like the Pantheon in Rome. Its interior includes grand columns, vibrant frescoes and a dome rising 83 meters high. The Pantheon was built in the second half of the 18th century. The Pantheon was commissioned by King Louis XV for the patron saint of Paris, Saint-Genevieve.
