Rome’s Religious Footprint

 

Church in Rome

The Pantheon — the current structure is believed to have been built between 118 and 125. Originally it was a temple dedicated to the gods of pagan Rome. After the 7th century it was used as a church and was known as Santa Maria Rotonda.

  4. My wife and I were in Rome a few years ago. The Pantheon blew me away. We took some photos of it. One of the photos became the header for my blog.
