With its enormous domed rotunda and impressive portico, the early 2nd-century Pantheon is the best-preserved and most magnificent of the ancient Roman buildings. Standing in one of Rome’s poorer districts, the Pantheon’s massive grandeur showing the ravages of time alludes to an imperial age that is now long past.
