Overview

This vast complex was founded in 1675, at Louis XIV's request to take in French ex-servicemen and handicapped war veterans; from whom it gets its name, 'Invalides'. It was the first French hospital-turned-home to be built entirely for soldiers. The building is adorned with a pretty classical facade, a delightful little garden, a large courtyard and an impressive esplanade. A hospital that cared for hundred or so disabled ex-servicemen, the complex also houses the Eglise du Dôme, Tomb of Napoleon, the Musée de l'Armée, the Musée de l'Ordre de la Libération and the Musée des Plans-Relief.
