The Pantheon

5 minutes on foot – 2 minutes by bike

The Pantheon is an architectural gem located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, near the Hôtel Les Bulles. He embodies the greatness of France and the ideals of the Republic.

Originally, it was designed as a church dedicated to Sainte-Geneviève, the protector of Paris, but was then transformed into a secular monument during the 18th century. This is how it symbolizes in the eyes of the French the transition from the monarchy to the Republic. Equipped with an immense dome, which dominates the district, it offers a spectacular view of the rooftops of Paris. The place evokes the great figures of French and European culture and has become a must-see in the Latin Quarter, a stone’s throw from our hotel.

The Pantheon is known to the general public for housing the tombs of many illustrious men and women who marked the history of France. Examples include Zola, Voltaire, Rousseau, Hugo, Zola and Marie Curie. In 2021, the remains of Joséphine Baker were transferred there. Their graves bear witness to the importance of their contributions to French society, whether in literature, in philosophy, in the political world, or even in the sciences and the arts.

In addition to its historical and cultural importance, the Pantheon also offers beautiful panoramic views of Paris from its terrace. In the heart of the Latin Quarter, very close to the hotel, it is the starting point for tourist itineraries that will take you to discover Paris.
