Past POIs - Pantheon [Rome, Italy]

The Pantheon, located in Rome Italy, is actually quite a stunning looking Roman temple in Rome. I know that I mentioned that it wasn't as impressive compared to some other things that I have seen in Rome prior to seeing it, but don't take that as 'you shouldn't see it'. Definitely do come and take a look if you have a chance.

It was built between A.D 118 and 125 making it one of the oldest and well preserved Roman buildings. And it's purpose was as a temple to the gods, but as time went on, it became a burial site and you will see a lot of prominent people buried here including Emanuele II and Umberto I.

Pay a visit if you can, it is free to visit, so it doesn't hurt. And if you are in the area and tired, there is a nice fountain just outside of it that you can rest at and take in the beauty of the exterior.

Come back next Friday for another Past Point of Interest!
