The church at the Invalides is large and dark and I had problems with taking good pictures with my pocket camera. Later I have discovered that my mobile phone camera usually works better than my pocket camera in such large and dark rooms. I will have to get back to the Invalides another time. If anyone wonders why a picture of the tomb of Prince Jérôme Napoléon (1784-1860), King of Westphalia (1807-1813), is missing, the reason is mentioned above! The chapel with his tomb was partly closed so it was too difficult for me to take a good photo from a distance.
Anyway, the Invalides can be reached among others by metro to La Tour-Maubourg (line 8) or Varenne (line 13). The official website can be found at http://www.lesinvalides.org/.
I visited Paris, France for the second time in October 2009. The photo presentation of the Dõme des Invalides is the last of the many cemeteries and mausoleums I visited during the visit.
