Pantheon: a massive building in the Latin Quarter

Set at the top of a small hill dominating the Latin Quarter of Paris, the Pantheon is a massive structure that serves as the final resting place to those who have made some of the most important contributions to France.
The Pantheon is the perfect spot to discover daring architecture, fine artworks and get up close and personal with some very famous historical figures away from the crowds.

Making the Most of it

There are 2 floors in the Pantheon. 

The ground floor is a large and spacious hall with a very high ceiling and interesting artwork curiosities. 

The crypt below is the final resting place of important people such as authors Victor Hugo and Emile Zola, scientists Pierre & Marie Curie and philosophers Voltaire and Diderot.

There aren’t any long lines at the Pantheon, but head there during lunchtime or 1.5 hours before closing time to have a quieter visit.

Parisianist Warning: The Pantheon has just started undergoing renovation that will end in 2022, so some areas might be under construction during your visit.

The Crypt: Voltaire and 75 other great people of the nation

There are 76 people buried in the Pantheon’s crypt, including 4 women.
Philosopher Voltaire arrived in the Pantheon in July 1791, and is the oldest person resting here. Other famous people include authors Victor Hugo, Alexandre Dumas and Emile Zola as well as Chemistry Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie.
The President of France is the one who decides who can be buried in the Pantheon, under two conditions: one needs to be French and at least part of the body needs to exist.

Ground Floor: curious decorations

Historically, the Pantheon has gone through many identity crisis (church or republican building?). Revolutionary, royalist, free-mason, philosophical and religious objects, sculptures and paintings can therefore all be seen in this unique building.
The Pantheon also mixes different architectural trends: Gothic, Classic, Byzantine, and Greek. Large windows once gave way to sunlight but in 1791, they were walled.
Consequently, the inside became very humid. Today, it is still a fragile monument that necessitates frequent restorations. Take a look at the impressive Dome (which is actually 3 stacked domes): its daring architecture caused a lot of ruckus in the 18th century!

History: complications due to a daring architecture

EFollowing the wishes of King Louis XV, construction of a church dedicated to the patron of Paris, Sainte Geneviève, began in 1764. After 26 years of painstaking construction following Jacques-Germain Soufflot architectural plans, the finished monument never ended up opening as a church after all.
Between 1790 and 1885, the use of the building kept on changing from pantheon to church several times… Only with the burial of Victor Hugo in 1885 did it officially become a pantheon, with no future changes.

Fun facts

4 Italians, 1 Dutch and 1 Swiss who have worked for Napoleon are exceptionally buried here also, although not of French citizenship.

All boarders have distinguished merits except Sophie Berthelot and Marc Schoelcher. They were buried with their husband and son respectively at a request of scientist Marcellin Berthelot (who died one hour after his wife) and politician Victor Schoelcher.

Architect Soufflot rests at the entrance of the crypt.

4 people, including first in Mirabeau, have been taken out of the Pantheon because of suspected acts of treachery.

Conclusion: a future identity crisis?

The Pantheon hosted Foucault’s Pendulum experiment in 1851, offering clear visual proof that the Earth rotates around its axis. This experience is still performed in the center of the Pantheon today.

There is no doubt that the building is a Pantheon today… or is it? Look at the tip of the dome outside: it is still a Latin Christian cross, not a flag!
