The Pantheon- Rome

The Pantheon is the only structure of its age, size and span that has successfully survived time and gravity. Most of the marble columns are the original, as is the huge bronze door. At the top of the dome is a hole called an oculus which is the only source of light. Some believe the Pantheon is still standing because it is divinely protected.
