It is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the capital. Political heart of Paris Situated in an area of Paris that is not heavily populated, considering the monuments and green spaces there, the Invalides district has barely more than 6,000 privileged residents. However, its lively atmosphere is maintained due to tourist traffic encouraged by its central location on the left bank, between the Eiffel Tower and the Latin Quarter. It was Henri IV who gave this district its first role. He wanted to provide accommodation for wounded and disabled soldiers ("les invalides" in French). Louis XIV then had the current building constructed, which was then taken back by Napoleon after the Revolution. The various mansions in the district are occupied by large institutions and embassies. The majestic Hôtel des Invalides The district is dominated by the dome of the Hôtel des Invalides. Since the 17th century the building has taken in disabled war veterans but it also houses military tombs and the Musée de l'Armée, among other things. This exhibition space is home to one of the largest collections of military paraphernalia in the world. You can't come to Paris without taking a walk through the tiled Cour d'Honneur. It leads to the Saint-Louis church with its golden dome. Many visitors come here to see the tomb of Napoleon I, which is reminiscent of those of Roman emperors. Between the monument and the Seine lies the solemn 1,600-foot Esplanade des Invalides. You get there by crossing the magnificent Alexandre III bridge, a gift to France from Russia. If you follow the river, you get to the Hôtel de Lassay and, of course, the Assemblée Nationale, the political hub of the country. Walking through this exclusive area, you also discover the Basilique Sainte-Clotilde, the Hôtel de Matignon, home to the Prime Minister, and the Rodin Museum, which houses works by the famous sculptor. Local businesses There are few grocery stores in the area, where take-out venues, brasseries and restaurants are more common. As for shopping, the stores in the area are mainly luxury boutiques. Les Invalides is served by the Varenne, Rue du Bac, La Tour Maubourg, Saint-François-Xavier, and Invalides metro stations, at which lines 8 and 13 stop. Interested in a
