l’Hôtel des Invalides

I have to admit, I was kind of surprised when arriving at Les Invalides (The National Residence of the Invalids). I expected to visit a church, but arrived at a military museum. So we didn’t enter it and were satisfied to watch it from outside.When visiting a museum, regardless what they are exposing, you need at least half a day to walk around an watch the exhibition.

It’s an impresive building glowing

in white and gold in the sun. Especially the dome was a perfect contrast in front of the blue sky.

The beautiful weather was also a reason for not visiting the museum, because it’s more pleasant to be outside than walking inside a museum.

There’s more to come. So, use the meantime to have a look at my previous posts on Paris.
