Located at Esplanade des Invalides, 7 th arrondissement, directly I could see the Invalides. It near the beautiful Pont Alexandre III. It’s very famous because there’s the body of Napoléon in 1840, rest in the crypt under de dome. Founded in 1670, and the construction of the dome began in 1706. Designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart and completed by de Cotte after Mansart died in 1708. Now, the Invalides comprises the largest collection including museé de l’Armeé, museédes Plans-Reliefs , musée de l'Ordre de la Libération and l'Eglise de St-Louis-des-Invalides.
