The Pantheon

A must-see when in Rome!

This is one of the best-preserved buildings of Ancient Rome.  It is 2,000 years old!

The Pantheon is the oldest, unreinforced concrete dome in the world.

For a fun movie reference, you can see the Pantheon in a scene starring Julia Roberts and Clive Owen in the 2009 film, Duplicity.

    If you go at the right time during the day, you can see the sun reflecting directly inside the Pantheon. It’s also interesting to look at the construction methods for when it rains through the top.

    I just visited the Panthéon in Paris this past weekend! It was amazing to see the similarities and differences in architectural structure. The Parisian Pantheon is still under construction as of now, so the buildings definitely differ in historical context as well. Downstairs below the main-level is where the krypt is located- housing the remains of distinguishable French citizens. I was shocked to find out that this is a secular building as well!
