Dômes - Hôtel des Invalides, Paris
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.
This photo shows the 6 coffins that covers the body of Napoleon 1on the 18'th century..This can be seen at the Army Museum.
This is another spotted beautiful side inside Army Museum. It has a pair, this one is on the right side near the entrance.
The Emperor's Tomb is enormous. It contains the remains of Napoleon within 6 coffins of different materials.
One of the most brightly lit dome I've ever come across. It emphasizes the baroque-effect, lighting up by hidden windows.
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.
The Army museum is good to visit to just see the old tombs of famous people. other than that, not much going on there....They have other tombs of other famous warriors and descendents too....
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.
Invaliden Dom, just from the Champs Elysee down to the Eiffeltower (crossing the Seine), you'll see the InvalidenDom
This building created (1670) for the disabled soldiers.
