Rose petals at the Pantheon

The spectacular tradition of rose petals fluttering down through the oculus of the Pantheon can be enjoyed on Sunday 15 May following 10.30 Mass for the feast of Pentecost.

The ancient ceremony involves tens of thousands of rose petals tumbling into the interior of the Pantheon, symbolising the Holy Spirit’s descent to Earth. 


Due to its popularity, those interested in witnessing the event should arrive by 09.30, and entry will cease once the crowd reaches capacity. For more details see Pantheon website.
