L'Observatoire de Paris

You will find this historical building within a 5-minute walk from our location.

Built by Claude Perrault from 1667-1672, it houses the oldest observatory in the world which is still functional. Founded in 1667 to be the workplace of Louis the XIV’s (“The Sun King”) academic astronomers, it is still the heart of French astronomy, and a major institution in the scientific world, housing both ancient and modern instruments of astronomy.  Additionally, it is a research and academic institution.  

It was at The Observatory in Paris, in 1713, that French astronomer Jacques Cassini measured the arc of the meridian from Dunkirk to Perpignan, creating the meridian of France.  This meridian was used to establish the first map of France.  

 While the prime meridian (Greenwich) was selected as the official prime meridian in 1884, France continued using the meridian of France for several decades.

Le Panthéon

Discover this piece of history within a 15-minute walk from our location.

Situated in the heart of the Latin Quarter, this neoclassical-style building dates back to the 18th century.  It was originally built as a church to honor St.Genevieve, but since the French Revolution it has served as a monument and secular mausoleum to honor notable figures in French history. 

Some of the renowned figures interred here include Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Sadi Carnot, Émile Zola, Jean Jaurès, Jean Moulin, Jean Monnet, Pierre and Marie Curie, André Malraux,as well as Alexander Dumas, who has been interred here since 2002.  Germaine Tillion, Genevieve De Gaulle-Anthonioz Jean Zav, and Pierre Brossolette have been buried here since May 27, 2015, and Simone Veil, along with her husband, Antoine Veil, since July 1, 2018.

Notre Dame de Paris

"The Grand Dame of Paris” is located within a 20-minute walk from our location.

For several centuries, Notre Dame has been one of the largest cathedrals in the Western world. 

It was also, for many years, the tallest building in Paris. 

It celebrated its 850th anniversary in 2013, and is visited annually by 13-14 million people. 

The building, which is also a minor basilica, is the most visited monument in Europe, and until 2019, one of the most visited in the world.

On April 15, 2019, a devastating fire destroyed the spire, and the entire area of the roof covering the nave, choir and transept. 

This is the largest disaster suffered by the cathedral since it was built, and it is currently undergoing reconstruction.

Les catacombes de Paris

Situated at Place Denfert Rochereau and within a 15-minute walk from our location.

The Catacombs of Paris are part of ancient underground quarries, connected by a network of tunnels. At the end of the 18th century they became a municipal ossuary, following the transfer of the remains of approximately six million bodies, exhumed from various Parisian cemeteries. 

This was done for public health reasons until 1861

Located 20 meters (65 feet) below ground, and about 1.7 kilometers (1.05 miles) in length, they are officially visited by approximately 500,000 annually, and are considered a museum of the City of Paris.  

 While there are other underground ossuaries in Paris, they are not accessible to the public, and, thus, are relatively unknown.
