Petit Futé's opinion on LE PANTHÉON
Run by Jacques-Germain Soufflot in 1758, the construction works of the Pantheon, commissioned by King Louis XV in tribute to Saint Geneviève, ended in 1793, thirteen years after the architect's death. The building, 110 meters long and 84 meters wide, is built on the form of a Greek cross. Its decor is also worth visiting: the academic painters Puvis de Chavannes, Gros or Cabanel were commissioned to carry it out. It was from 1885, that the Pantheon became the place of worship that we know today. It is the place where the great personalities of French history rest! The first great man to enter is Victor Hugo. Among the personalities who rest in the crypt include: Voltaire, Rousseau, Jean Moulin, Condorcet, Pierre and Marie Curie, Dumas and Simone Veil. The dome has been refurbished for several years thanks to a crowd funding. Now, you can admire it again, just refreshed.
