Les Invalides

The beautiful gold dome of Les Invalides can be seen from all parts of Paris. It was established in 1670 by Louis XIV as a hospital and home for aging and sick soldiers. The complex includes a large church, 15 courtyards and many buildings.

The National Military Museum is located here, and many famous war heroes are interred in the chapel, most notably Napoleon. I wished I had the time to see the inside of the complex.
