This is a companion piece to the Foucault pendulum photo I posted a couple weeks ago although this isn’t part of the pendulum but rather a spiral staircase, leading to the tombs in the lower level of the Pantheon.

 

We found Voltaire and Rousseau‘s statues facing each other across an aisle. Among the others who are entombed are Marie CurieVictor Hugo, Émile Zola, Jean MoulinLouis Braille, and the architect of the Pantheon, Soufflot.

 

This is the way to find them. It’s a steep journey to the end.
