129 Rue de Grenelle, 75007 Paris, France
This place was incredible. Even my partner that's not into milliary stuff had an amazing time. There's so much to see and so much history. It's awesome to just walk around looking at the buildings and courtyard.
The little general got this huge cenotaph. Napoleon is responsible for the death of 2.5 million soldiers and 1 million civilians (this is a low estimation, there are others who say up to 5 or 7 million) Napoleon has also done a lot of good things, you can read them around his cenotaph. Up to you to judge if he is on the side of Hitler, Mao, Stalin, G.W Bush etc or of the great statesmen.
It's a historical monument. An elegant structure. Tourists from india during their city tour of Paris are normally taken to this place though we May not enter the museum. Surroundings are scenic and attract the attention. We have spent around half an hour here. if One has only so much time, take photos and relax
So so so so so cool. We spent almost all day here. Very very interesting. We did not do a guided tour, but we still saw everything. There are descriptions of everything in French and English, which makes it easy for tourists to comprehend what they are looking at. Napoleon's tomb is a MUST SEE.
As a prominent monument with historical significance, Les Invalides is the final resting place of Napoleon Bonaparte. It had been built as the Retirement Home for French Veterans under King Louis XIV in 17th Century. Beautifully constructed with Baroque style, Les Invalides is now served as a Military Museum as well.
