Rue Soufflot y Le Panthéon

Jacques-Gabriel Soufflot (July 22, 1713 – August 29, 1780) was a French architect in the international circle that introduced Neoclassicism. His most famous work is the Panthéon, Paris, built from 1755 onwards, originally as a church dedicated to Sainte Genevieve.
In the 1730s he attended the French Academy in Rome, where young French students in the 1750s would later produce the first full-blown generation of Neoclassical designers. Soufflot's models were less the picturesque Baroque being built in modern Rome, as much as the picturesque aspects of monuments of antiquity.

This is so cool, I have almost the same point of view of this street that you commented on two years ago! I really liked this area of Paris. We could walk here from our hotel and ate a a few of the places along this street. Good memories! V
