  • It is located next to the church of the same name, in what was the old Forum Olitorio, between the Forum Boario and the Teatro Marcello. It is a sacred area discovered in 1937, which has provided very important information about archaic and republican Rome. The occupation in this area began during the 8th century BC and there is evidence of the existence of two temples, one dedicated to Fortuna, the only one visible today, and another to Mater Matuta, a marine deity, whose foundation is attributed to the Etruscan king Servius Tulio. After several episodes of destructions and buildings, during the 6th century A.D. a church was erected on the temple of Mater Matuta, rebuilt in 1482, dedicating itself to San Salvatore in Porticu; finally, during the eighteenth century, it is definitely dedicated to Saints Omobono and Antony. The sacred area can be contemplated from the outside; if we want to visit its interior we will have to do it by mandatory reservation to the phone +39 060608 for a maximum of 25 people. The price of the entrance fee is 4 euros.
