The Pantheon

We ended up a block off from the church we were heading to, so we went straight in to the Pantheon. After all the ornate churches we had visited already, the Pantheon seemed subdued and understated. I love the simple geometric designs everywhere. The catholic church has set up their gilded altars and worship area, but this ancient building belongs to all faiths. We sat for a while on some empty pews, enjoying the different archetectural details. The earlier rain left behind some puddles below the oculus, so they cordoned off the center area of the building, which made it seem not so crowded in our nearby pews.
