Panthéon, Paris: 108 reviews and 253 photos
The Pantheon is a giant domed monument and landmark, that you can see from far, rising high above Quartier Latin.
In 1744 after an illness Louis XV directed to build a church ressembling the panth?on in Rome. This church of St Genevieve was completed in 1790. Later in 1791 the church is converted into a mausoleum for the great men of the era of French liberty.
The Pantheon is a good example of the 18th century neoclassic architecture. Underneath the high dome you see a circle of elegant columns.
