The Panthéon is situated at the top of the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, in the heart of the Latin Quarter. The first bricks were laid by King Louis XV in 1764. Originally, this monument built by the architect Jacques-Germain Soufflot was to be a church devoted to Saint Geneviève. However, the revolution had other ideas. On April 4, 1791, the National Assembly ordered that the monument should become the Panthéon for well-known personalities who had contributed to the greatness of France.
