  • Within the complex de Les Invalides, the Dome was built with the aim to house the remains of the King and the Royal family. The idea of the Dome was founded in 1676 when the Sun King was the desire for a church to its exclusive use and also for the preservation of remains real. This project then did not succeed; However the Dome turns out to be one of the masterpieces of seventeenth-century French architecture. From 1840 there are located the remains of Emperor Napoleon, who died in exile in Saint Helena on 5 may 1821 left expressly written in his will that his remains back in France. A visit to his tomb in fact is the main reason why most people buy the entrance ticket of the Dome, which is the same as to access the rich de Les Invalides. You can visit for free beautiful gardens that are located to the left of the entrance of the Cathedral and the Court of the complex of Les Invalides.

  • Every visit to the Invalides fails not to bring the visitor to many satisfactions, not by the discovery that it is possible to do. Beautiful church of the Dome, inspiring respect and admiration.
