"The Pantheon is one of the..." Pantheon Tip by Audrey118

Pantheon, Rome: 268 reviews and 564 photos

 
 

The Pantheon is one of the best preserved Roman Monuments in Rome.
It survived the decline that most of the rest of Rome suffered for the next thousand years due to the Catholic Church protecting it (and using it as a church).

The Pantheon, is a remarkable and old structure was first built somewhere around 50 AD. s dome is an architecture marvel. It later inspired Bramante when he constructed the Saint Peters one. Under the dome we can find some famous coffins: Raphael --the painter--, Humberto I, and Vittorio Emanuelle II.

The column in front of the monument comes from an Egyptian temple.
