Pantheon, Rome: 272 reviews and 577 photos

  Dome and oculus, view through entrance door.

Completed almost 1900 years ago and still intact. That, together with the revolutionary dome construction, the huge size and the mystic atmosphere make the Pantheon one of my personal favourites in Rome. The size alone is impressive (a 43.3 meter sphere would fit exactly) but the light falling through the oculus (hole in the top) makes this temple uncomparable. There are drainage holes in the floor in case it rains....
