The Palace and its beautiful garden became the exclusive model for palaces in Europe. The place begun as a hunting lodge for the king, which later served as the home for three French kings and each one of them made a few modifications to make it more attractive.

Arc de Triomphe Paris
This Arcbuilt between1806 and 1836 stands at the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle and is located at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. This monument is more triumphant among the arches of France. Even though the structure was modified many times the arch still holds the essence of the original concept. It incorporates decorative style which is similar to tradition of sculpture from the first half of the nineteenth century. This arch is dedicated to the brave people who fought for the integrity of France, especially during the Napoleon Wars. Inside and the top of the arch there are engravings of the names of generals who fought during those wars. Under the vault of the arch there are inscriptions and the tomb of the Unknown Soldier from First World War. A continuous flame burns at this memorial making this place a true monumental site.

Panthéon
It is located on the 5th arrondissement on the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève. It was built by the architect Jacques-Germain Soufflot who unfortunately died before the work was completed. It is considered as one of the most important architectural achievements of that time and the first great neoclassical monument of its type. Technically speaking pantheon is a temple for the Romans but for the French it is a sort of funeral. This Pantheon in Paris has an interesting story, it was originally built as a church dedicated to St. Genevieve, turned into a pantheon and again it was changed back to Church. From Church once again it was changed to pantheon. It is the most visited popular French monument.
