Expert Tip. Les Invalides, three blocks from the hotel, consists of a complex of buildings containing museums and monuments, all relating to France's military history. The most notable tomb at Les Invalides is that of Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) in the crypt under Mansart's dome. A popular tourist site today, Les Invalides is also the burial site for some of Napoleon's family, for several military officers who served under him.
