The history of Agrippa's Pantheon

Rome’s Pantheon is a must-see tourist attraction located in the heart of the city. This 2,000-year-old ancient building was built in 27 B.C. by the famous Roman general Agrippa as a temple dedicated to all the gods of Olympus. The original structure was destroyed by fire, but was rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian around 118-125 AD.

Curiosities and dimensions of the Pantheon

To visit the Pantheon is to have a unique experience, thanks to its unique architecture and imposing dimensions, such as the dome’s diameter of 43.3 meters and its height of 43.2 meters. In the center of the dome is a 9-meter opening, called the “oculus,” which allows the sun and rain to enter the interior of the building.

Also visit other temples in Rome

Visit the Roman Forum and the Temple of Saturn. It represents one of the oldest buildings in Rome, dating back to the fifth century B.C., and is one of the best examples of the architecture of the Roman Republic still in existence. Its facade with Corinthian columns was completed in the 4th century AD, and the temple is still a symbol of power and authority.

While it is not possible to visit the interior of the temple at the moment, visitors can still admire other important sites in the Roman Forum such as the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina, the Arch of Septimius Severus, the Temple of Vesta, the Basilica of Maxentius, and many others.
