Very large church in the land of Napoleon. Worth a quick visit but not one of Paris' most beautiful or interesting churches.

When you visit Napoleon's tomb at des Invalides, at one point you see into the Cathedral from the main axis. You can then visit the cathedral as you move through the complex. I have to admit I still don't understand why it is a cathedral...More

Outside the cathedral is stunning but a bit disappointment inside. Of course there's great history of France and part of the other museums in area.

This cathedral is within the hotel des invalides and was built in the 17th century. The golden dome is a particular focal point with its shimmering golden colour that shines in the sunlight. Well worth a visit.

It is a beautiful place, part of the complex of the Army Museum and the burial place of Napoleon Bonaparte. Extremely beautiful and a pleasure to visit.

Compared to sacre Coeur and other beautiful churches, the interior of this small cathedral is modest . However it's included in the Admission ticket to the includes and the visit takes maximum 20 minutes so you can have a look.
