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 :




Stunning ceiling



A clock ? ๐Ÿ•‘


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

โ‹… Victor Hugo – Alexandre Dumas – Marie Curie – Pierre Curie – Jean Jaurรจs – Felix ร‰boue – Emile Zola – Jean Moulin – Andrรฉ Malrauxย โ‹…

The shadow of Voltaire was there too :


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

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

I kept the ticket ๐ŸŽŸ :


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 ๐Ÿ™‚

See ya ! ๐Ÿ’œ

      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
