Built by Louis IV to commemorate his recovery from an illness in 1744, the Pantheon was designed by Jacques-Germain Soufflot.  Constructed between 1764 and 1790, it became a place where illustrious Frenchmen were buried during the revolution.  It became a church again under Napoleon in 1806 but was returned to the status of civic building in 1885.  Honore Mirabeau, Voltaire, the Curies, Malraux, Rousseau, Hugo and Zola are buried here.
