The Pantheon in Paris: a monument to French history

What awaits you on site


The Pantheon in Paris, an imposing neoclassical building in the Latin Quarter, serves as a national mausoleum and honors important figures in French history. Originally built as a church in honor of Saint Genoveva, the patron saint of Paris, it was converted into a mausoleum after the French Revolution. Construction began in 1758 under the direction of architect Jacques-Germain Soufflot and was completed in 1790.The Pantheon is characterized by its impressive dome and imposing façade with Corinthian columns, which is strongly inspired by the Roman Pantheon. Inside the building is the crypt, where many important French people, including Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Émile Zola, Marie Curie and Alexandre Dumas, were laid to rest.

Today, the Pantheon stands not only as a symbol of the French Republic and its values of liberty, equality and fraternity, but also as a place that honors the scientific, literary and political contributions of its famous inhabitants. It is a major tourist destination and a place of remembrance and reflection on France's heritage.
