Located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, The Panthéon was originally built as a church and was the first building that offered a panoramic view over France’s capital.

After many changes, now The Panthéon functions as a mausoleum containing the remains of distinguished French citizens such as Voltaire, Rousseau, Marie Curie, or Jean Monnet (among many others).

This masterpiece of the architect Soufflot was inspired by the Pantheon commissioned by the Roman architect Agrippa in Rome.
