The Pantheon, in the historical centre of the City, is one of the best kept ancient monuments in the world. So called because it was a temple dedicated to many deities, particularly to Mars and Venus, it was built by order of the consul Agrippa, friend and son-in-law of Augustus, in 27 BC.
Surprisingly, almost all we can admire today of this famous monument, goes back to Roman times, even the dome and the massive bronze door of the entrance, which goes back to Hadrian’s time (76-138 AD), the emperor who had it re-built in 130 AD. In 609 the building became a Christian church and this probably contributed to its preservation, as in other similar cases. In the interior, where once there were the statues of various gods, there are some tombs, among which those of King Victor Emmanuel II, Humbert I and the Queen Margharet and Raphael Sanzio, the famous painter.
