Cathédrale Saint-Louis des Invalides, Paris: 38 reviews and 108 photos
One of the most beautiful parts of Les Invalides is the magnificent Eglise du Dome designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart and added to the ensemble in 1706.
The elegant golden cupola, which can be remarked from far away, gives to the whole ensemble a royal aspect.
The four Virtues lay on the corner of the balustrade.
The interior, with beautiful painted cupolas and low-relief sculptures, was modified in order to receive Napoleon's body.
In the six smaller lateral chapels, located on both sides, other tombs of important French people can be found, while the tombs of General Duroc and Bertrand are located at the entrace to the crypt.
