Panthéon

Panthéon

 

 

Aaah, Paris, the city of love, fashion, and great cuisine. And of old monuments. I don’t know if you know this one in other countries, but in Paris we have a huge building called the Panthéon. It regroups the remains of great men and women of French history, especially those who participated in the name of the republic values and human rights, such as writers, scientists, member of the resistance, and nobel price owners.

The place itself is stunning, its huge and really tall inside, and because it’s made of stone it was way colder than outside ! It’s very weird since it’s winter, it gives you a strange feeling.

I’m sorry if the pictures are not of great quality, but it was a spontaneous visit so I didn’t have my camera with me at the moment, I took them with my phone. I hope you’ll enjoy them anyway !

Here is the entrance :

The National Convention, that was the existing institution right before the Republic.

⋅ Victor Hugo – Alexandre Dumas – Marie Curie – Pierre Curie – Jean Jaurès – Felix Éboue – Emile Zola – Jean Moulin – André Malraux ⋅

The shadow of Voltaire was there too :

And a lot more, but I couldn’t put them all.

 

And here is a grid of some paintings, sculptures and more of what you can see inside :

 

I kept the ticket ? :

I hope you enjoyed this cultural parenthesis, even though it’s not what I usually post about in this blog.
But since I live in Paris, I thought maybe i’ll show you what you can see here, so the people who can’t go or want to can see a bit of it ?

See ya !

      It does indeed 🙂 It’s intimidating to realize so much happened there.

    Incredible! I’ve always wanted to go, so it’s great to see what’s inside 🙂

      You’re welcome ! That’s too bad, but hey French food is good too ? I hope you’ll be able to come back and visit more !

      • 16/02/2017 / 11:40

        I just feel like French food and vegan is a hard thing to find 🙁
        Some day I will definitely go back to visit Paris to see what I didn’t get to see last time.

          Oh in this case yeah, French food is a lot about meat and butter, so not ideal at all ! But lately with the popularization of the vegan diet you can find very good vegan restaurants ! ?

            Exactly, it compensates for the rest in a way ! ?

    The Panthéon is a very nice place!! It gives the wish to write to those people who made history! 🙂 I remember having written a letter to Jean Moulin (a beautiful resistant during the 2nd World War).

      That’s a great idea ! It would be amazing to be able to actually talk to people from the past, but I guess in the meantime we can just write them letters they’ll never read haha ?

    Fascinating! I’ve been to the Pantheon in Rome, I didn’t realise till now that there was another in Paris! I managed to see some sights on my last trip (to a Stade Francais) match, I’ll maybe get to the Pantheon next time 🙂
