There are 18 Corinthian columns that adorn the façade. The structure was erected in the 18th century under the patronage of King Louis XV. The neoclassical style recalls the elegance and immortality of antiquity. Today, the interior of the Pantheon acts as a memorial to the accomplishments of France’s most influential citizens. Beneath the main dome, the family can see where Foucault’s pendulum, the device that proved the theory of earth’s rotation, was demonstrated.
