Whether you’re a history buff, a passionate gourmet, or both, you’ll easily find something to satisfy your appetites in the capital.

 

In memory of great men

The Pantheon, standing proudly atop the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève in the fifth arrondissement, is certainly one of the most majestic Parisian buildings and the roles it has fulfilled over the centuries have reflected the changes experienced by our nation. Initially a church, but now a secular mausoleum dedicated to national heroes, this impressive domed monument hosts the famous Foucault Pendulum. A guided tour of the Pantheon provides plenty of opportunity to admire the sumptuous frescoes of the French painter Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, which constitute its interior decoration, but also to discover the last resting place of writers including Emile Zola and Victor Hugo, philosophers such as Voltaire and Rousseau, as well as Jean Moulin, a hero of the Resistance. Staying at the Hotel Saint-Jacques will place you in the midst of the treasures of French history.
