You will cross Paris the St Michel district and the Latin quarter with La Sorbonne seat of the Paris University to reach « la Montagne Sainte Geneviève » and on the hilltop the Pantheon. This vast monument has been erected in the 18C. King Louis XV wishes to glorify the monarchy in the form of a church dedicated to Sainte Geneviève, the patron saint of Paris. After the revolution the edifice was named the Panthéon.

Since 1885, the year of Victor Hugo’s death and burial in the Panthéon, it has been the last resting place for the great writers, scientists, generals, churchmen and politicians who have made the history of France. In the crypt houses, you will find the tombs of more than 70 illustrious figures including Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile Zola, Alexandre Dumas, Pierre and Marie Curie etc.
