Pantheon - from the Greek "Temple of all gods". The Pantheon of Agrippa, also known as the Roman Pantheon, is one of the architectural masterpieces of the Italian capital. This is the best-preserved building of Ancient Rome. Located on Piazza della Rotonda, between the Fontana de Trevi and Piazza Navona.
The construction of the present Pantheon was carried out during the reign of Hadrian, in 126 AD. Agrippa's name comes from the site where the current building was built, which was previously occupied by the Agrippa Pantheon, which was built this year. 27 BC, which was destroyed by fire in 80 AD. At the beginning of the 7th century, the building was donated to Pope Boniface IV, who converted it into a church, and currently the building is in perfect state of preservation.
