Paris Weekend - Pantheon

The next place we visited while we were in Paris was the Pantheon. Many famous French people are buried here like Voltaire, Victor Hugo, Émile Zola, Alexander Dumas, and Pierre and Marie Curie. Also inside was a cool pendulum that was built as an experiment to demonstrate the rotation of the earth (my geeky engineering friends will find the link interesting).
