The Pantheon

A visit to discover the Pantheon and the surrounding streets (place de la Contrescarpe, rue Mouffetard).

The Pantheon is a former church transformed into a republican temple after the French Revolution. In this temple France honors its greatest men: Alexandre Dumas, Victor Hugo, Emile Zola rest for eternity in the Pantheon, you can see their vaults.
