Rose petal ceremony at the Pantheon

Thousands of rose petals flutter into Pantheon on 20 May 2018.

The spectacular tradition of rose petals fluttering down through the oculus of the Pantheon is scheduled on Sunday 20 May following 10.30 Mass for the Feast of Pentecost.

The ancient ceremony involves fire-fighters dropping tens of thousands of rose petals 43 metres 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 begin queuing several hours in advance, as entry normally ceases once the crowd reaches capacity. The Pantheon is expected to begin charging a €2 entry fee on 2 May. For details see Pantheon website.
