The Hotel of Invalides was constructed in classical style in 1679-1709. Its dome decorated by a gold ornament with a graceful small lamp at a spike in height of 107 m.
The ashes of Napoleon transported from island of Sacred Elena in nineteen years after death of emperor is based inside.
In September of 1840 remains of Napoleon wre returned to France and burried, as well as remains of pharaons, in six coffins: from a tin, mahogany, lead, an eben tree and an oak. Coffins are placed in the big sarcophagus from a red granite. 12 winged Victories of emperor stand around. The Cathedral is a tribute of Napoleon memory.
