About Pantheon

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.

    If there is a place in Paris that is one of the most visited, then it should belong to the ancestral temple. A little Greek architectural style, here sleeping many French sages, immersed in the scene, feel the memories and feelings of France for hundreds of years.

    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!

    Beautiful architecture and history. Be aware of the closing times because they cut off tours the last 45min before closing.

    From the colonnade around the building's dome, you have an excellent view over Paris. The Panthéon itself is best seen coming from the Jardin du luxembourg through the rue Soufflot.

    After visiting Paris many times before, it wasn't until recently that I visited the Pantheon. Located in the Latin quarter, this building, originally built as a church dedicated to the Patron Saint of Paris, Saint Genevieve. It hosts the Foucault pendulum, the device that demonstrates Earth's rotation, as well as crypts underneath where you can visit some of the most famous French citizens resting place, like Voltaire, Rousseau, Marie Curie, Louis Braille and many more. You can also climb the steps to the top of the dome to have an amazing view of the city. I have never done it myself, but a couple of close friends have and remarked that it was a magnificent view.

    The Pantheon was originally built as a church but now has become more famous as a burial place. In the crypt are Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Marat, Emile Zola, Jean Moulin, Soufflot, Louis Braille, and Marie Curie. It is also worth visiting to see the animated model of Foucault's Pendulum, a device which demonstrates the earth's rotation.
