The Pantheon

The Pantheon, truly one of the greatest buildings in the history of the world. The Pantheon was built around 120 AD by the Emperor Harian.

A view of the Pantheon showing the columns in the front and the dome behind.

In the 7th century the Pantheon was turned into a church which saved it from destruction by the Barbarians and Christians. The roof is authentic Roman while the lower layers where renovated as can be seen in this picture.

The incredible dome of the Pantheon. To this day, this is the largest dome ever built without reinforced concrete, in fact it is the largest dome that can be built with just masonary. A truly staggering achievement.
