  • When in Rome a must see place is The Pantheon. An amazing building in the center of Rome which has a concrete dome with a beautiful "oculus" that lets the light in, right in the middle of the Dome. The story of this particular place is odd: it's construction was commissioned to worship the ancient gods of the ancient Rome. It was destroyed, rebuilt and now holds mainly catholic figures and is used as a church, go figure.

    In spite of being a mainly catholic place, lots of tourists gather around it in La Piazza della Rotonda and in the Pantheon itself to marvel at one of the wonders of Rome, a place that has stayed almost intact in time. It doesn't matter which religion you are, this is a beautiful place to see and wonder about. All kinds of languages can be heard when walking through the piazza and the pantheon, reminding us that in spite of all the cultural, religious and contextual differences we may have we are still part of one same thing: humanity.
