The Panthéon Paris Interior. 

The Panthéon looks Neoclassical, but it actually has a gothic structure. Before the french revolution, there were so many windows that the walls couldn’t be supportive, so Sufflot used a gothic skeleton to hold us the building. Can you find the hidden flying buttresses?

During the revolution all the windows were filled in with stone, and are now fresco paintings (wherever there is a fresco in the Panthéon, there was a window-it used to be basically a lantern)
