Description

A southwest view of the Panthéon in Paris. Built in the neoclassical style, the Panthéon models itself after the Pantheon in Rome. The pediment of the portico rests on Corinthian columns. A dome, designed in a similar fashion to St. Paul's Cathedral in London, surmounts the crossing of the nave and transept of the building.
