Petals shower at the Pantheon

Petals shower at the Pantheon

After the queues at the Vatican and the Colosseum, this Sunday you will be able to see a very long line in front of the Pantheon!

Pentecoste occurs 50 days after Easter and celebrates the descendent of the Holy Spirit. According to tradition, following the mass at 10.30am, ten of thousands of rose petals will fall from the top inside the Pantheon to represent the descend of the Holy Spirit to Earth.

The hole in the roof of the Pantheon is 9 meters large and dozens of firemen will climb 43 meters high rooftop to prepare this petals shower from 43 meters height.

 

Those who are interested in attending this spectacular event should queue from early morning. However, be aware that the access is not guaranteed; the entry will cease once the site reaches its maximum capacity.

But it will worth getting up early and attending this magical moment!!!
