  • The sight of this small temple, dedicated to the power of Rome and located inside the hole, where it was probably only a minor monument, jaw-dropping for the exceptional State of preservation. Studying history is to understand how the building has suffered many damages over the centuries but have managed to keep almost intact its structure. Heavily bombed during the second world war it was renovated by the Italian State with the use of original material. Inside, the entrance of which is free of charge, are preserved some ancient statues.

  • little mixed feelings here. It is a beautiful monument to see. We could also go in, and for the small amount we have that done of course. well nicely set up, but very small. that fell to me. of course, that good at a cost of maintenance, so well spent.
