Dôme des Invalides

Dôme des Invalides In 1676 Louis XIV, the Sun King, commissioned the construction of a church in the Invalides complex. The Invalides already had a church, but this one would be reserved for the king himself. In 1841 King Louis-Philippe decided to place Napoleon’s tomb here. After more prominent figures were entombed here the church became a pantheon dedicated to France’s military leaders.
