"The old famous Pantheon reminds of Roman culture" Pantheon Tip by WanderingFinn
Pantheon, Rome: 272 reviews and 577 photos
As one set of web pages of Pantheon states, The Pantheon is the Roman monument with the greatest number of records: the best preserved, with the biggest brick dome in the history of architecture and is considered the forerunner of all modern places of worship. It is the most copied and imitated of all ancient works. (See also Wikipedia's good informative Pantheon web pages).
Michelangelo felt it was the work of angels, not men.
Pahteon is a temple dedicated to all Roman gods.
What amazes me, is again the age and the fact that how well it is preserved and still standing: the thing was built between 27 and 25 B.C. by the consul Agrippa, Prefect of the Emperor Augustus. So more than 2000 years ago. We cannot build something like this anymore. How many years do our buildings stand? A good question. Go to Pantheon and wonder.
Directions: Everyone in Rome knows Pantheon; also it is marked to all maps.
