Hôtel des Invalides

Highly recommended
This stunning architectural complex was built in 1671, according to the plans of Libéral Bruant, to receive and care for the war wounded. Its buildings now house various military bodies and the Musée de l'Armée. In the centre of the majestic facade, a magnificent portico provides access to the main courtyard and to a church, the Église Saint-Louis-des-Invalides. On the other side, the Église du Dôme, built by Hardouin-Mansart, houses the tomb of Napoleon.
