Pantheon

It was built by Emperor Hadrian in the second century AD. The main feature is the dome, with a central eye of 9 meters in diameter, which allows you to watch the sky from inside the building. Legend has it that inside the Pantheon, despite the opening, water can not enter in the event of rain.
