famous buildings that you MUST see 16. Pantheon

building

>Built approximately 2000 years
ago, the Pantheon continues to
inspire architects all over the world

Rome is home to many amazing
buildings, and the Pantheon is no
exception. And, like the city itself, it
was not built in a day. Destroyed
twice and rebuilt each time, the
building started as a rectangular
structure, which, over time, evolved
into the gorgeous dome building
seen today.
An inspiration to architects all over
the world over the last 2,000 years,
the Pantheon roof remains the
world’s largest unreinforced
concrete dome. There is much
debate between historians over
which emperor and architects were
responsible for the Pantheon’s
design although it is known that this
‘Temple of the Gods’ was built
around 126AD.
