    Every time, I look at it, or pass by this, I am filled with admiration for architecture, for the scientific experiment that was carried out inside to show the rotation of the Earth. A must must visit if you love science. The building has been renovated and cleaned recently and it looks very beautiful now.

    This is one of the many beautiful architectural structures of this very old city. It made me wonder how they were able to build these wonderful buildings that long ago. I won't be able forget my time here.

    The catacombs are well worth the visit alone and are a surprise addition to an already impressive monument. Go early, or out of season to avoid the crowds. The visual aides and interactive displays are excellent; giving you a real sense of place and time, particularly French religious power play and it's Rubulican past.

    A must see in terms of understanding French society and cultural history. There are two elements: firstly, the crypt containing the tombs of heroes of the republic, e.g. Voltaire, Dumas and Marie Curie. Secondly, the main area of the Pantheon above ground, currently containing a centerpiece, see picture, a pendulum proving the Earth rotates around an axis and an exhibition in French, English and Polish for Marie Curie.

    The final burial sites for heroes/heroines, public servants and public figures who have made significant contribution to France and the French society. Amazing architecture! No word to describe the dome. The subterranean crypt (the actual burial site) underneath was out of this world (no pun intended). Many famous people (including scientists) are buried there: Pierre and Marie Curie, Louis Braille (of the Braille code), Carnot brothers (of the Carnot cycle). A hidden gem of Paris. Totally worth visiting.

    Monumental. Reclaimed as a celebration of the Republic, this original building was supposed to be a royal church. It has kept its grandiose and the massiveness of the structure is an hommage to architectural ingenuity and the human desire to transcend time. The crypt is now the repository of the last rest of the great men and women of the Republic. A must see and visit on your touristic exploration of the capital. Guided visits are well organized and rich in explanations which allow you to gain a better understanding of the monument.

    Pantheon was one of the few places which I had failed to visit during my year of stay in Paris. I returned and did finally visit. It is an architectural piece of grandeur and a living example of the skill of French artisans who worked on it. I found it to be leagues ahead of its counterpart in Rome. Also, was fortunate to have found an exhibit on Marie Curie ongoing during my visit. Somber experience

    A very impressive building modelled partly after the Pantheon in Rome celebrating the great French Heroes such as Victor Hugo, Marie Currie, Voltaire, etc.. The crypt is a bit of let down. I was expecting more glorified tombs instead I found pretty plain ones. Not really befitting such great people interred there. The interior and dome are very impressive. Admission should be a bit less.

    On this trip we found almost all major locations under maintenance... But still, It is a beautiful place to visit. Full of history, and famous and important people down the cryps that you should pay a visit and pay your respects.

    Amazing architecture and some great history! Fun fact, Marie and Pierre Curie are buried here! Go check out the crypts! I recommend everyone to put this on the list
