  3. Le Panthéon


The Panthéon is a magnificent building that was built between 1764 and 1790, commissioned by King Louis XV and completed on the heels of the French Revolution. Not only is the building renowned for its Neoclassical architecture, but the Panthéon is also the resting place of famous individuals such as Victor Hugo, Voltaire and Marie Curie. The architecture is inspired by the Roman Pantheon, with the dome closely resembling the dome of the St. Paul's Cathedral in London. This is a must-visit for all visitors of Paris - not only for the grand history, but the sheer beauty of the Panthéon as well.
