Les Invalides

Paris, France
4.8 / 118
An architectural complex near the Eiffel Tower. The house was built under Louis XIV and was used as a shelter for veterans who were injured and injured during the wars. There were no similar establishments in Europe, so the monarch showed himself from the very best side, showing concern for his subjects. The Handicapped House welcomed the first guests in 1674. The ensemble consists of the church of St. Louis, the slender ranks of the barracks, the park and the hospital.



Saw this amazing building whilst on our travels up and down the River Seine on the Batobus and had to pay it a visit. It is a bit of a walk from the Batobus stop but is well worth it. The museum grounds are free to enter but you have to pay to go ins.. Read more »

a must see in france when you are visiting france and remember Napoleon you have to visit his tomb which the design is attractive and the decoration inside was interesting to me.The dome is much more beautiful because of gold used on it.
Disrespectful tourists are the absolute worst. Please remember this is Napoleon's tomb, be quiet and aware of your surroundings. It's full of French history and artifacts. The architecture and mural on the dome are unforgettable!
Very interesting. Very good exhibitions. Gift shop a bit pricey though.
Beautiful loved the field full of rabbits out front.
Beautiful and spacious area , greatly secured where I could perform my aerobics session at open air. Due to mask wearing requirements , there I could exercise and feel free. Priceless. Thank you all for having me, see you soon?
