Panthรฉon

pantheon

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 Panthรฉon. 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 :

      1. 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 ! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. 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 ๐Ÿ˜Š
