Apartments in the Pantheon Area: Accommodation Fit for Gods

The Agrippa Pantheon, or Rome Pantheon, is a temple that represents the cosmogony of a society that used devotion and beliefs as a driving force for the development of art and culture. It was built by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa in 27 BC and was subsequently rebuilt by Hadrian on top of the ruins that remained after the fire of 80 AD. In 609 AD the Byzantine Emperor Phocas, the sovereign of Rome, gave it to Pope Boniface VI who converted it into the Santa Maria ad Martyres Church. The skeletal remains of the martyrs were transferred to this church from the dungeons and it was consecrated to the purification of the city of Rome.

The word Pantheon is of Greek origin and means “all the Gods”. According to studies, the original building did not bear a lot of resemblance to the current building. The vault was rectangular rather than circular, as it had to reflect the strength of the Roman Empire and the emperor. The orientation of the building also changed and the main façade now faces north. A square was built in front of the temple with porticoes on three of its sides. The Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage is responsible for maintaining this architectural gem, in spite of the fact that it is a church and is dependent on the Vatican.

UNESCO declared the historic center of Rome and the Pantheon World Heritage sites in 1980.

Pentecost is one of the typical rites that are celebrated in the Pantheon. On June 8th, red rose petals are dropped from the oculus of the building while the choir sings “Veni Creator Spiritus”. It is an amazing sight.

If you visit the Pantheon, you will need to be patient as there are always many visitors and you may need to wait to enter.
