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 :
A clock ? ?
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 !
