The Pantheon

The Pantheon

The Pantheon is historic even by Roman standards. It dates back to 125 AD and was built with a hole in the top called the Oculus. The building material used is concrete, which after being used in Roman times, fell out of favour and was rarely found until it was redeveloped in the mid 1770s.

Try to catch a choir performing in the Pantheon - the acoustics are outstanding.
