Things to do in Pantheon
The Pantheon was built in the Augustan period and is dedicated to all the gods worshiped in the days of ancient Rome. Rebuilt by Emperor Adriano between 118 and 128 AD, the building is a typical example of classical architecture: the calculation of the geometries and the perfect harmony of its lines make it stable and balanced.
With the advent of Christianity, the Pantheon was converted into a Christian basilica in the early seventh century by the name of Santa Maria della Rotonda. This conversion has allowed it to remain intact over the centuries and unaffected by looting and damage operated into Rome of the popes against the classical buildings.
Today the Pantheon can claim the status of a Minor Basilica and is home to millions of tourists every year.
