Another monument that immerses you in the old Roman Empire. The Pantheon, still in good condition, was originally a temple to all the gods of ancient Rome. Today it gives its name to a district of Rome.
It was built there more than 2000 years by order of Agrippa. It was destroyed by fire and rebuilt by Hadrian in the early second century.
The Pantheon was then converted into a Christian church in the seventh century, which was saved from destruction.
The Pantheon is now the largest ancient Roman monument that has survived virtually intact, due to its continued use until today.
The Pantheon supports the largest dome in all antiquity (43.3 m diameter inside), which remains the world's largest unreinforced concrete.
