Monument / Landmark
“Pantheon was originally built as a church dedicated to St. Genevieve and to house the reliquary châsse containing her relics but, after many changes, now functions as a secular mausoleum containing the remains of distinguished French citizens. It is an early example of neoclassicism, with a façade modeled on the Pantheon in Rome, surmounted by a dome that owes some of its character to Bramante's "Tempietto". Located on the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, the Panthéon looks out over all of Paris. ”

College Library
“The Sorbonne’s magnificent library is featured in Martin Scorsese’s film Hugo, which I love for its wonderful homage to the cinema and to the pioneering director Georges Méliès. The gorgeous, vaulted-ceiling reading room is where Hugo discovers that Méliès invented special effects. The library is one of the oldest in Europe and was one of the first buildings to mix metal and stone in the early 19th century. It was quite revolutionary.”
