Panthéon: view of the exterior

These are photographs of the Panthéon, Paris, from outside. Originally a shrine built in honour of Sainte Genevieve, it was converted after the French revolution into a monument to honour the great people of France. Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Marie Curie, Émilie Zola, Alexandre Dumas are only some among many greats who have been burried here.

View of the Panthéon building from bus stop which is named after the building.

To its right side, the structure with tower is Église Saint-Étienne-du-Mont. Check this link for my post on it.

Closer view of dome with triple cupola
Go more close and you can’t see the dome but the ornate walls and Corinthian pillars are visible
Interior façade up close
Corinthian columns and the design on the interior façade

Panthéon is available for public to visit with ticketed entry. I haven’t been inside yet. When I do, will do another post on it’s interior 😊
