The building of pantheon Rome is circular with a portico of large granite Corinthian columns (eight in the first rank and two groups of four behind) under a pediment as its shown in pantheon Rome map. A rectangular vestibule links the porch to the rotunda, which is under a coffered, concrete dome, with a central opening (oculus) to the sky. Almost two thousand years after it was built, the Pantheon dome of Rome is still the world largest unreinforced concrete dome. The height to the oculus and the diameter of the interior circle are the same, 43.3 metres (142 ft).
Pantheon Rome is one of the best preserved of all Roman buildings. Pantheon Rome has been in continuous use throughout its history, and since the 7th century, the Pantheon has been used as a Roman Catholic church dedicated to "St. Mary and the Martyrs" but informally known as "Santa Maria della Rotonda." The square in front of the Pantheon is called Piazza della Rotonda as its mentioned in pantheon Rome map.
