PIAZZA DELLA ROTONDA

One of the city’s most iconic tourist landmarks, this square gets its name from the Pantheon’s informal title as the church of Santa Maria Rotonda. Completed by the Emperor Hadrian between 118 and 125 AD and still in use as a Catholic church, the “Temple of all Gods” (Pan-all, Theon-gods) was chosen in 1870 as the burial place of the first kings of Italy. During the 19th century, the piazza was especially noted for its market of fish and fruit sellers.
