"Pantheon" Panthéon Tip by Irato
Panthéon, Paris: 108 reviews and 253 photos
The king Louis XV founded this building as a votive church after his recovering from serious illness. During the French Revolution it was changed into the mausoleum with the tombs of Wolter, Hugo, Rousseau, Zola. It’s a beautiful building, excellent example of 17th century architecture. But why I’m here? Well, I read Umberto Eco’s “The pendulum of Foucault”(not sure if it’s English title) and then I discovered I could see this pendulum here. So, because of my curiosity I did it. Since then it is the house of the pendulum for me.
