What It Is
Located in the Latin Quarter of Paris the Pantheon was originally built as an abbey in commemoration of the Patron Saint of Paris, Saint Genevieve.
In the 18th century this neo-classic church was converted into a mausoleum under the instruction of the French Government.
The unique building still hosts a series of painting and murals which narrate the life of the great saint and tell the story of early Christianity.
Since the church was renamed the Pantheon in 1791, the building's main use has been to house the remains of deceased French writers, politicians, military leaders, scientist, clergymen and other famous French men and women.
