Les Invalides, the Dôme, Napoleon tour in Paris

Les Invalides was built by King Louis XIV in the late 17th century. This huge and magnificent building was dedicated at hosting old and injured soldiers (hence the name: Les Invalides = “the invalids”). With Napoléon’s Grande Armée, the place hosted many new soldiers and became quickly the gathering point for all the Bonapartists in Paris. Even after  Napoléon‘s death, many old soldiers were still gathering here, close to the impressive tomb of the Emperor.

Les Invalides and the Army museum are worth a visit: the museum is very complete, dealing with all the modern times of military history.
