Description

Discover the iconic Paris Pantheon! Located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, this Neoclassical monument conceals a wealth of historical, artistic and cultural treasures.

Its unique silhouette and dome stand out on the city skyline from the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, the historic hill of the Latin Quarter. Since the French Revolution, this ancient church dedicated to the patron saint of Paris houses a necropolis of great Republican figures in its crypt.

The Pantheon was commissioned by Louis XV who wanted to erect a building honouring the glory of the monarchy. Then the 1791 Revolution requisitioned the monument and bestowed it to the Republic, creating an ultimate patriotic symbol: the National Pantheon. However, during the 19th century the site was intermittently revered as a religious symbol and a symbol of the people. Is was only in 1885, when the body of Victor Hugo was committed to the Pantheon, that the building became recognized as the resting place for important figures of the Republic: Voltaire, Rousseau, Zola, and even Pierre and Marie Curie are buried here. 

Enter the monument to admire the interior decorated by great academic painters such as Puvis de Chavannes and Léon Bonnat. Discover the many celebrities buried within then make your way up into the Dome to admire incredible views of the capital!
