The Pantheon is a world renowned monument located in Rome. This recognizable monument was constructed to be the house of all gods worshiped by ancient romans. Commissioned by Marcus Agrippa, the Pantheon was further rebuilt by Roman Emperor Hadrian in 126 A.D. The Pantheon first built by Marcus Agrippa was  commissioned to celebrate Agrippa’s third consulship in 27 B.C. The first Pantheon, located on the outskirts of Rome burned down in 80 A.D.

The current Pantheon was the result of Emperor Hadrian who decided to once again rebuild the temple under his reign. The new location of the Pantheon was chosen because it was the location, where Romulus, one of the foudners of Rome was swept away by an eagle and into heaven. The Pantheon was eventually converted into a Christian church by Pope Boniface IV.  Pope Boniface IV consecrated the church to Santa Maria and Martyres. Converting the Pantheon into a church increased maintainance efforts and saved the monument from  becoming a ruin.
The Pantheon is now one of the most recognizable monuments in the world. The  careful caretaking of the monument has helped the building maintain its powerful atmosphere and elegant architecture. Visitors not only come to the Pantheon for sightseeing, but they also come to study  and admire the marvelous architecture. With its impressively tall and strong columns as well as its brick dome which also happens to be the largest brick dome in the history of architecture, the Pantheon attracts professionals, students and all those who admire architecture.

The Pantheon is a symbol of Greco-Roman architecture. This monument is a significant part of Roman history and a symbol of modern Rome. Located in a lively square with restaurants, bars and shops, the Pantheon is a wonderful destination for all those visiting Rome.
