NATIONAL HOTEL FOR THE DISABLED
Petit Futé's opinion on NATIONAL HOTEL FOR THE DISABLED
Hôtel des Invalides was founded on order of Louis XIV so that the soldiers of his armies could be taken care of and that the oldest find here reception for a well deserved retirement. The buildings, a hospital, are designed by the architect Liberal Bruant. The construction site lasted a few time: from 1670 to 1674. Two years later, the Saint-Louis churches and of the Dome by Jules Hardouin-Mansart were built. In this church, you will have the opportunity to see the tomb of Napoleon I placed here by Louis-Philippe although this decision did not win unanimous support. The gigantic site dedicated to the defense of the French State was transformed today into a museum; are installed today the Army museum, the de Gaulle Monument, the relief map museum and the Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération. Note that your admission ticket gives you access to all these places. In the hotel courtyard, you can have fun trying to find the architectural trace of Louvois, Louis XIV's famous minister. A clue: at that time, people liked to make a rebus of their last name!
