Pantheon, Rome

Planning to visit the Pantheon? Check out our information below!


One of the best-preserved ancient buildings from Roman times is the Pantheon. This former Roman church is hidden between the buildings of a residential area and is special because of funerary monuments (including painter Raphael and several Italian kings), a striking large and open dome (oculus). The oculus, is located in the centre of the Pantheon, it is an opening that makes the structure resistant to earthquakes. Standing exactly under this opening, it is also a place that connects heaven and earth for the faithful.
