l'Eglise du Dome


This photo of the Eglise du Dome was taken from the Rodin Musee jardin. Part of the complex of Les Invalides, the Eglise du Dome was commissioned by Louis XIV. Today it is a museum, and no longer used as a church. It houses Napoleon's tomb among other things.

We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

Last summer in Paris, I watched a quiz show that originated from the rotunda of l'Église du Dôme. It was all about Napoleon and his army.

That makes sense, Starman...there's a whole section there about Napoleon and his army...

One of «Louis's» regrets about his time in Paris is that he never went inside l'église du Dome....

Jacob said...

It is very beautiful, Louis, with quite a lot to see.

That's a wonderful and well balanced photo, Jacob.
