The ancient saying goes well. The consequence of not coming to Rome to see the Pantheon is that he was stupid when he came, and he was stupid when he went.
The Pantheon is one of the most important buildings in the world of architecture, both in Italy and around the world. It has a very important position in the history of architecture. The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, Brunelleschi is the dome built with reference to the Pantheon.

There are many Roman period buildings in Italy, the most complete of which is the Roman Pantheon. The building has a long history and was built in 27 BC. It has a history of more than 2,000 years and is a model of ancient Roman architecture. The main body of the Pantheon is a huge cylinder covered with a semi-circular dome. The top is open with a large circular hole. At different times of the day, the light is discharged from the top and shines in different positions in the temple, giving a kind of The sacred and solemn feeling is very shocking.
The obelisk towering over the entrance to Pantheon in the Piazza della Rotonda was originally from Ancient Egypt. The Romans installed it on a carved fountain base, and has a crucifix at its top. The complicated and superimposed appearance of this perfectly symbolizes the atmosphere of the pantheon. The Pantheon was once said by Michelangelo to be a design made by angels. The portico of the Pantheon features classical Greek columns, and the inside space is broad and vast, creating the sense that one is inside a perfect sphere. The only source of life surprisingly comes from the ceiling skylight. No matter how many times I visit, I will always lift up my head to look at the ray of light that emanates from the center of the hemispherical dome.
In the center of Rome, there is a fountain with a tall spire and a monument in the center. The base of the monument is carved with ancient Roman mythology (Fig. 9). This fountain is located at the Roman Pantheon.
The Pantheon is the only Roman Empire building that has been preserved to this day. It was built in 27-25 BC to worship the gods on Mount Olympia, a classic building from the Augustus period.
It was praised by Michelangelo as "the design of the angels". The huge hemispherical dome (Fig. 2) inside has not fallen for two thousand years and is definitely a miracle in the history of architecture.
