From Christian basilica to temple of the nation!
Last week I played toursit in Paris again. This time we visited the Panthéon. A very interesting monument... just dress very, very warm as it is freezing cold here (any time of the year & I'm not exaggerating!!). It's in the 5th arrondissement which has a different atmosphere than the usual touristic places you can visit in Paris! If you're in Paris, go there & see for yourself!
Foucault's pendulum, demonstrating the rotation of the earth.
Amazing, huge paintings

Details of one of the ceilings
In the crypt, the resting resting place of various great men and just 2 women... (Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Emile Zola, etc.).
It was so clean & peaceful in the crypt

Have a nice week & stay warm!!
