Since Mr. Selfish and I have been in Paris for more than three weeks, we’ve walked past the Panthéon in the Latin Quarter many a times. We waited for a sunny day in order to climb it and enjoy the view of the city. That sunny day came, and we purchased our 8.5 euro tickets to the Panthéon.
In 1744, King Louis XV decided that the Panthéon should be built in Paris and modeled after the Patheon in Rome. Due to financial issues, the building wasn’t finished until 1790.
