The Piazza della Rotonda is a city square in Rome (Italy), on the south side of which is located the Pantheon. The square gets its name from the Pantheon’s informal title as the church of Santa Maria Rotonda.
The National Pantheon contains the tombs of several Portuguese presidents, writer Almeida Garrett (one of the country’s leading 19th century literary figures), and in recognition of her iconic status, Amalia Rodrigues, the most famous fado diva.
The building is on the plan of a Greek cross, and the interior is covered in beautiful, multicolored slabs of polished marble. It is crowned with a dome that provides a 360-degree view of the river and the city.
