The Pantheon, with the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome, is an impressive old building.
The Pantheon is a former Roman Temple and is now a church.
The massive architecture features Corinthian columns.
Inside, you can see the beautiful dome with the coffered ceiling and the hole, oculus, in the top that lets in light and rain...
Here, also, is the tomb of Raphael.
