Take a self-guided tour of the Panthéon, a masterpiece created by Soufflot (1713-1780) and a former church that became the burial place for famous French personalities from the French Revolution.

See a major exhibition that pays tribute to Jacques-Germain Soufflot, one of the greatest French architects. Journey through his career and his monumental achievements, the most famous being the royal Church of Sainte-Geneviève, the current Panthéon. The architect achieved Louis XV’s desire to glorify the monarchy in church form dedicated to Saint Geneviève. The edifice was deconsecrated during the French Revolution in 1791 and renamed the Panthéon. During the turbulent 19th century, it shifted between a religious and patriotic monument.

Since Victor Hugo’s death in 1885, the Panthéon has been the resting place for French writers, scientists, generals, clergymen, and politicians. The crypt houses the tombs of 70+ illustrious figures including Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile Zola, Alexandre Dumas, Pierre, and Marie Curie.

From the recently restored upper floors, enjoy superb views across the city (from April to October).
