⚜️"The Panthéon" ⚜️⚜️⚜️ King Louis XV (1710-1774) vowed in 1744 that if he recovered from his illness he would replace the ruined church of the Abbey of St Genevieve with an edifice worthy of the patron saint of Paris. ⚜️He did recover, and he fulfilled his vow,
with building a church (now functions as a secular mausoleum) modelled on the Pantheon in Rome, with its triple dome. ⚜️⚜️⚜️ #thepantheon #neoclassicism #ruedelamontaignesaintegeneviève #memoriesofparis #myphoto #myphotography #kinglouisxv #stgenevieve #church #mausoleum #latinquarter #5tharrondissement #paris #dome #artoftheday #arthistory #architecture #artoflooking #artobserved #lookup #artblogging #loveparis❤️ ⚜️⚜️⚜️

Swipe Left <— “Le Grand Mazarin”, 19.07 carat, historic diamond. Expected to bring in 18-25 million dollars, coming up at the “Magnificent Jewels” sale @christies Geneva next week.
“To tell the story of the #legrandmazarin diamond is to delve deep into the history of France. It is also to tell the story of more than three and half centuries of enthralling stories involving a legendary cardinal, four kings, two queens, two emperors, two empresses, a spectacular jewel robbery, a notorious auction and the greatest jewelers of France.” Today, I had a Cinderella moment and had the very special privilege of playing with it for a little while.....

The Versailles is incredible, if a bit over the top. I think the French Revolution made things square though so I’m gonna gawk at some gold #Versailles #chateaudeversailles #gold #kinglouis #kinglouisxiii #kinglouisxiv #kinglouisxv #kinglouisxvi #jardinsdeversailles #marieantoinette #frenchrevolution
