Overview
More
With the Pantheon, architect Jacques-Germain Soufflot met Louis XV’s wish to glorify the monarchy in the form of a church dedicated to Saint Geneviève, the patron saint of Paris. The edifice was deconsecrated during the Revolution in 1791 and renamed the Pantheon. During the turbulent years of the 19th century, as regimes changed, it alternated in its role as a religious and patriotic monument. Since 1885, the year of Victor Hugo’s death and burial in the Pantheon, it has been the last resting place for the great writers, scientists, generals, churchmen and politicians who have made the history of France. The crypt houses the tombs of more than 70 illustrious figures including Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile Zola, Alexandre Dumas, Pierre and Marie Curie etc.Open:> 1st April to 30th September: from 10 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.> 1st October to 31st March: from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Last admission 45 minutes before closing time.

This is a difficult place to review. It certainly is not perfect, it needs some work. At the same time, there is so much history, art works and interesting facts to learn. My wife Karin knew about the Pantheon, I did not. But I really...More

Magnificent building, wonderful artwork, excellent sculpture, the tomb of great Frenchmen, and Foucault's pendulum. While the artwork on the walls and the sculpture here and there are wonderful, don't forget to look up, as the ceilings and domes are terrific!

The Pantheon is interesting, but was never one of my must shows when I took students to Paris. Many of the illustrious persons entombed here are not well-known to the average tourist.

Aside from it being a mausoleum, interiors are really worth a try. I am perfectly aware that the French love their language and are proud of it - having said that, a bit of English would not hurt for all of us, not-eating-jam for-breakfast continentals...More

you can combine this visit with the Jardin du Luxembourg and also Notre Dame. At the Pnatheon you should allow from 1 hour to 2 hours. Voltaire, Marie and Pierre Curie, Rouseau rest there among others.

This place is really impressive! Aside from the obvious historical elements of the Pantheon, the architecture and artwork that you observe in this final resting place of French elite is second to none. Take any local art gallery, and this will put it to shame....More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During

I'm not sure when all the times are for access to the dome, but they should be listed when you enter and pay. When we went there was one at 2 PM and 3 PM as I recall. You gather near the ticket booth just inside the... More
