What I See From Mountain To Sea

Dôme des Invalides is the location of Napoleon Bonaparte and other interred famous people from French history. This is also called the Dome church because it was a royal chapel built between 1677 and 1706. Hôtel des Invalides is another name of it. A visitor to France will soon find out that the term "hôtel" is not necessarily a place for visitors to sleep. 🤔 This is one example of "hôtel" referring to a large building of some significance such as a museum, mansion, or city hall (as in the case of Hôtel de Ville".) The Museum of l'Armée, which is a military museum is also here. Besides Napoleon Bonapartes' remains, there are also family members and war heros interred here. The next photo will show an example of a war heros' tomb. Some people interred in this mausoleum are not here in entirety. Some are here only at heart. 😌🌹🌹... Only their hearts are here. The architectural style of the mausoleum is Baroque. 129 Rue de Grenelle 7th arrondissement is the address.
