How to get bounding box for text using Pango

I’m trying to get a bounding box for text. That is I have text (several lines) and I would like to get, before rendering to cairo surface:

  • Width of text with no line breaking
  • Height of rendered text
  • Distance of baseline from top of the box

It seems Pango is correct tool to the job but I cannot find information on how to do it (outside of low-level operations which I’m not sure if I do correctly as I’m not that familiar with font rendering).
