Pantheon

The Pantheon Rome is the only completely intact piece of Roman Architecture left in the world. It is simply breathtaking and no visit to Roma is complete without a look inside where, among other things you can find the remains of Raphael. The Pantheon is held up by huge monolithic marble pillars each weighing 90 tonnes which were miraculously brought to Rome by sea from Egypt over 2000 years ago. Inside the Pantheon you should look up and admire the ornate ceiling… Curiously the Pantheon’s height is exactly the same as the radius of its’ dome… consequently inside it could host a perfect sphere or better still would be the perfect place for a fisheye photo.

Did You Know? The Pantheon contains lots of holes in the marble floor to let the rain drain out (rain enters the Pantheon through the “oculus” a hole in the roof 9 metres wide and a symbolic link between the Roman worshippers and their gods).
