"The coolest building I have ever seen!" Pantheon Tip by CTnightowl
Pantheon, Rome: 272 reviews and 577 photos
The Pantheon was completed in 126. Its basically a 143 foot ball. The concrete dome is a mystery as to how it was built. Domes are very difficult to build and techniques were not around 2000 years ago. The granite columns in front are monolithic. The front doors are bronze. It has an oculus. The oculus allows light to pass thru and it serves as a watch. There are magnificent paintings and sculptures on the inside. Truly breathtaking!
