    Les Invalides

    This is where Napoleon's Tomb is located (since around 1840). It was a hospital and now houses a few old soldiers.

    It looks great in summer with all the flowers in the surrounding gardens.

    Unluckily we didn't enter Invalides.. Whereas next time I won't miss it I promise.. Invalides was being seen from our hotel room also.. It has a poetic beauty as all the ther spots of Paris...

    The dome of the Hotel des Invalides is quite a sight. Napoleon's tomb is located underneath the dome.

    Upon entering the Army Museum, this chapel is just right in front of you...in beautiful golden color architecture.

    The Dome

    One of the most brightly lit dome I've ever come across. It emphasizes the baroque-effect, lighting up by hidden windows.

    right outside the dictator's door!

    From just about any spot in town, you can see the lovely Tower. It's like never being very far away from an old friend.

    Les Invalides

    This church was founded by Louis XIV in 1670. It is part of a large establishment built to house disabled veterans.

    I was not inside because it was closed during my stay.
