The present-day Pantheon is located on the site of an earlier structure of the same name, constructed around 25 B.C. by statesman Marcus Agrippa, son-in-law of the first Roman emperor, Augustus.Traditionally thought to have been designed as a temple for Roman gods, the structure’s name is derived from the Greek words pan, meaning “all,” and theos, meaning “gods.”The original Pantheon was destroyed in a fire around 80 A.D. It was rebuilt by Emperor Domitian, only to be burned down again in 110...
In 330, the capital of the Roman Empire was transferred from Rome to Byzantium (modern-day Istanbul, Turkey) by Emperor Constantine.Afterward, the Pantheon fell into a long period of disrepair. In 476, the German warrior Odoacer conquered the western half of the Roman Empire, where Rome was situated.The Pantheon’s long decline continued. Then, in 609, Pope Boniface IV got permission from Byzantine emperor Phocas to convert the Pantheon into a Christian church, known as in Latin as Sancta Mari...
Made primarily from bricks and concrete, the Pantheon consists of three sections: a portico with granite columns, a massive domed rotunda and a rectangular area connecting the other two sections.Measuring 142 feet in diameter, the domed ceiling was the largest of its kind when it was built. At to the top of the dome sits an opening, or oculus, 27 feet in width. The oculus, which has no covering, lets light—as well as rain and other weather—into the Pantheon.The walls and floor of the rotunda...

It is an early example of Neoclassicism, with a facade modelled after the Pantheon in Rome surmounted by a dome that owes some of its character to Bramante's "Tempietto". Located in the 5th ...

Hard as it is to stop staring upwards at the oculus, we really need to start looking down and around the inside of the building, which is beautiful. As you look round the walls you'll see eight separate recessed spaces. Three of them are tombs : one the final resting place of the great artist Raphael, the other two are Kings of the unified Italy, including Vittorio Emanuele, known as the 'Father of the Nation', whose tomb is often guarded by a volunteer. Four of the remaining recesses are chapels dedicated to St Joseph, the Madonna of Clemency, the crucifixion, and the annunciation. Take time to stand and look, as other tourists dash by. Each of them is beautifully decorated with fine Renaissance art - frescoes, paintings and sculptures. You will find this sculpture in St Joseph's Chapel within the Pantheon.
The final recess is the high altar. It's important to remember that, whilst most visitors go to the Pantheon to see a monument, it is a modern working church, the current name of which is the 'Basilica of Holy Mary of the Martyrs' (Sancta Maria ad Martyres). The high altar and look - there's that mosaic I mentioned here! It's not unusual for Mass to be celebrated amidst the throng of visitors around the recess containing the sumptuous high altar. You'll find seats here where you can pray, or just sit quietly and take in the beauty of it all.
With so many sights competing for your attention, it can be hard to remember to look down - but that would be a mistake. The floor is set out in a regular pattern of squares and circles in fine marble with rich reds, warn yellow browns and stark black and white. This pattern radiates from a central disc of bronze which contains holes to allow the rainwater to drain away (it does sometimes rain in Rome!). Part of the beautiful marble floor with bronze drainage hole in the middle. The whole floor dips inwards to help the drainage. To stand and watch the rain fall through the oculus is quite a sight. A secret wish for me is to see snow fall through there, but given that snow is a rare event in Rome, I may have quite a wait. If you're in Rome in the winter months, you may just be lucky!
You'll find Rome's Pantheon in the Piazza Della Rotunda, but from all sides there are brown monument signs pointing the way. It's openMonday to Saturday, 9am to 7.30 pm, and Sunday 9 till 6pm. Although it's a very popular tourist destination, there are never the lines you'll find at St Peter's, and almost always you can walk straight in. As with any other working church in Rome, visitors are asked to act with respect. Be modest in clothing, (no bare shoulders for women, no hats for men) and do not make too much noise, so as not to disturb people praying. In fact, silence is requested when a service is taking place. Look out for the self-guided tour sign. It is possible to book a guided tour for 40 Euros for a maximum of four people, or there's a good audio guide which is informative but not overwhelming and available in a range of languages, which helps make sense of what you're looking at. Both are available at the information desk which is on the right hand side as you go into the...
If you come out of the main door, turn right, go to the end of the Pantheon and turn right again, about 100 yards along that street you will see Bernini's wonderful elephant statue- a sight not to be missed. Kids, particularly, love it.
