A Special Exupery Day around the Panthéon Neighborhood in Paris, France

Saturday, September 21, 2019 0 Comments


The Panthéon Neighborhood in Paris, France
Even with the sudden sad rain pour in Paris, the striking building in the Latin Quarter made a good impression to everyone around. Located in the 5th arrondissement on the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, while walking towards the Panthéon, you can notice that it’s quite unique compared to the rest of its nearby areas. The lightness and brightness of the Gothic cathedral makes it actually guise like an ancient historical place that you’ll generally find in Rome, instead of Paris.

While walking towards this famous “Temple of the Nation”, I remember that all I could think of is a BAD idea of buying another entrance ticket, only to stay here for a few short hours – was not a huge fan of it, maybe because it was raining, or maybe because I had one too many museums that day... but good thing that it was one of those days when I did not decide to skip on seeing this place. GOOD idea. Pantheon Paris is such a welcome surprise!

If you are a follower of Antoine De San Exupery, you have to visit the Pantheon. No this isn’t a post about this famous Antoine Marie Jean-Baptiste Roger,comte de Saint-Exupéry, author of the book The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince), but it’s sort of a highlight, because inside the Pantheon, Paris, you’ll find a national homage to Antoine de Saint Exupéry.

Amongst the burials and impressive architecture, I was rather surprised to see how the French people gave tribute to their literary icon, a massive painting pops out quite distinctively amongst the rest equally amazing masterpieces. The halls around the area were rather noisy with the clicks and flicks of our cameras. Good thing that the other visitors in the area were also participating in this camera concert we were doing! As how Antoine would say, “what is essential is invisible to the naked eye”, and here we are taking photos of everything we thought was essential!

The Pantheon in Paris, and its surrounding areas is one of the few places that I believe you need to spend at least a whole day to enjoy. Much like the Louvre Museum, it’s packed with so many monumental and neoclassical architectural wonders, it makes you want to live in the past and see how it looked like before. The collections of art, sculptures, tombs, and historical artifacts are so abundant, I couldn’t quite grasp the fact that well-known French figures like Victor Hugo, Marie Curie, Alexandre Dumas, and the likes are there, in their crypt form. You can enjoy so much history and fine views of the Parisian city from the colonnade of the Pantheon’s dome.
