Pantheon, Rome
Pantheon is a mystical building in Rome known as the ancient Temple of every god. After the fall of the Roman Empire it was consecrated to the catholic faith and named the Basilica of St. Mary of the Martyrs. Also it's known as Santa Maria Rotonda.

The Pantheon is 142 ft height and has the same diameter. It's illuminated only with the oculus.

Interesting facts


It rains inside the Pantheon because of the oculus, so the church has the special drainage system.

Also the Pantheon's oculus is used for the Pentecost celebrations: the shower of red rose petals is presented here.
