Rome is home to many world-famous historical monuments such as the churches in Vatican City, the Colosseum, et cetera. However, every list of must-visit spot in the eternal city is incomplete without the magnificent Pantheon. It is well-known as the temple of all the gods. Situated in the historical centre of the Italian capital, this building was constructed in 125 A.D. by Emperor Hadrian. From the 16th century, it is been used as a Church and is one of the most visited religious destinations in Rome.
On the other hand, the quintessential architecture is sure to take your breath away! The way which the Pantheon is constructed is nothing short of pure genius. It inspired numerous buildings all over the world and architects call it an amazing construction even today. It is over 2000 years old but still looks brand new because of impeccable maintenance. It is in use since it was constructed and that may also be the reason behind its spectacular view.
Moreover, one can also find the tombs of Italian kings and legendary artist Raphael here. As soon you enter
into the Pantheon, the first thing to impress you will be the opening, known as oculus, on the roof. This oculus resembles the heaven and adds to the stunning view. This also provides room for the natural light and air to enter inside the building. Interestingly, Michelangelo was inspired by the Pantheon and designed famous church of St. Peter’s Basilica. Piazza della Rotonda is a square near this destination which also has a fountain and an obelisk from Egypt. Weddings are often organized on a regular basis. Getting here is easy and it is just a walking distance from Piazza Navona. To add to the fun, the entry is free and you can experience one of the best façades Rome has to offer!
