Panteon has two ambiances: the former Holly Trinity church with all the mentions of our great figures than lies within and the absent ones; and the new maussoleum for Bolívar that seen from aoutside is an abomination, but when inside it's just overwhelming.

Unreal. Surreal. The only IMAX-type theater in the world for a dead person. Truly mind blowing. I had wondered what the big ugly building crowding the Panteon from behind was, and then I entered...and was lucky enough even to see the changing of the guard....More
