The Pantheon: first major monument in Paris
The Pantheón de Paris (Pantheon of Paris) was the first place from which Paris could be seen from above. It is located in the Latin Quarter, very close to the Luxembourg Gardens. It was designed with the intention of combining the simplicity of Gothic architecture with the majesty of Greek architecture. Throughout its history it has had different functions: in the 19th century it served both religious and patriotic purposes, depending on the political regime. Under the Third Republic, the Pantheon became a building to house the bodies of illustrious persons. The remains of Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Marie Curie, Louis Braille, Jean Monnet and Alexandre Dumas, among others, rest there.
