The Pantheon

This is one of the most iconic and indispensable monuments to visit in the Eternal City. It's one of the few Roman buildings to remain intact, encompassing centuries of history, art, culture, and sophisticated building technology.


The origin and function of this majestic monument can be deduced from the meaning of its name. In Ancient Greek, Pántheon means “temple of all the gods.” In Latin, the building is called Pantheum.

The Pantheon is located in the Pigna district, in the heart of the historic center. The temple was dedicated to all the gods of the past, present, and future. Today it’s one of the best-preserved Roman buildings in the world.
