Rome Attractions Pantheon

Posted 14.03.2014 by Leigh

Address: Pantheon, Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Rome, Italy.

The Rome Pantheon in the heart of the historic centre is the Italian capital city's second most popular tourist attraction, after the Colosseum, attracting 3.75 million tourists a year. The Pantheon was built by Emperor Hadrian between 118A.D. and 125A.D. and was dedicated to the worship of every god (Pan - every/Theon - divinity). In 609A.D., it was converted into a Christian church by Pope Boniface IV and consecrated to Santa Maria of the Martyrs. This is one of Rome's best preserved ancient buildings and is quite an amazing feat of architecture. Remember to ensure you are looking up when entering the Pantheon, so that you can admire the 9-metre 'oculus' in the centre of the dome which allows natural light to lighten up the whole church.
