Hôtel des Invalides and Église du Dôme
The king Louis XIV founded in 1670 a hospital for his invalid and old soldiers. The building could house more than 4000 people. In the same time were built two churches ? Saint Louis les Invalides for soldiers and Église du Dôme as a royal church. Église du Dôme is a place where is the tomb of Napoleon I. Well? this church is full of the bad taste inside and pretty nice outside. Part of the Hôtel des Invalides is adopted for the Musée de l?Armée and Musée des Plans-reliefs.
The best view on this complex of buildings you have from the Pont Alexandre III. Near by Hôtel des Invalides is Musée Rodin ? really worth to pay visit.

Address: Metro ? Invalides ? line 8 or 13.
Directions: Off Avenue du Maréchal Gallieni. At Esplanade des Invalides
