It's kinda off the beaten track, perhaps something for you to see on a second or third trip to Paris. Basically, it's a mausoleum for distinguished French citizens and it's where the Foucalt's pendulum is installed. The pendulum is the living proof that the earth is round and revolving around itself.

France's great mausoleum dedicated to the country's greatest men of science, mathematics, and philosophy. Take a look at the tombs of some of the great thinkers of the Enlightenment like Voltaire, Rousseau as well as other great French intellectuals like Victor Hugo and Marie Curie

For not being one of the more common tourist destinations in Paris, the Pantheon completely blew me away. The building was undergoing some restoration, so I can only imagine how great it will look when finished.

Grand building and one of the sites to see south of the Seine. There is a fee to enter the building as with nearly eveything in Paris.

The Pantheon was originally built as a church but now has become more famous as a burial place. In the crypt are Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Marat, Emile Zola, Jean Moulin, Soufflot, Louis Braille, and Marie Curie. It is also worth visiting to see the animated model of Foucault's Pendulum, a device which demonstrates the earth's rotation.

Frances distinguished and great ones are buried here. You can also observe Foucault's Pendulum, which demonstrates the rotation of the Earth. Among those buried in the necropolis are Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Emile Zola, Marie Curie and Louis Braille. Just 5 minutes by foot from the apartment.

Place du Panthéon - Some giants of French literature are interred here, but I never stepped inside. It might be modeled on the Pantheon in Rome, but friends have told me it reminds them of St-Peter's Basilica, at least the interior.

After visiting Paris many times before, it wasn't until recently that I visited the Pantheon. Located in the Latin quarter, this building, originally built as a church dedicated to the Patron Saint of Paris, Saint Genevieve. It hosts the Foucault pendulum, the device that demonstrates Earth's rotation, as well as crypts underneath where you can visit some of the most famous French citizens resting place, like Voltaire, Rousseau, Marie Curie, Louis Braille and many more. You can also climb the steps to the top of the dome to have an amazing view of the city. I have never done it myself, but a couple of close friends have and remarked that it was a magnificent view.
