What will you see inside the Pantheon?

The exterior of the Pantheon is one of its most remarkable features. Even if you do not enter the landmark, just viewing it from the outside will be more than worth a visit.

While the exterior of the building is impressive, it goes without saying that entering the Pantheon will take your visit to the next level. At the center of the main hall, there is an impressive 83-metre high dome that can be climbed during summer for a beautiful view.

The so-called Foucault Pendulum is suspended from the center of the dome. This experiment dates back to 1851 and was used to demonstrate the Earth's rotation on its axis. Today the pendulum is still in operation and visitors can see how the experiment works live at the Pantheon.

On the ground floor of the Pantheon, there is a massive hall filled with works of art and sculptures that combine religious and political elements. Art enthusiasts will benefit from purchasing the audio guide provided by the Pantheon to learn more about these unique pieces.

The mausoleum of the Pantheon can also be visited and is located on the lower level of the building. Here you can see the graves of notable French people, including Marie Curie, Voltaire and Alexandre Dumas.

A network of narrow hallways leads to the graves and signs with each individual name guide visitors through the mausoleum.
