  • Located in the middle of the Roman Forum. It was the House of the vestals, keepers of the temple priestesses of Vesta.

  • At the center of the hole, connection point and step with the staircase to mount Palatine, nice garden that are Acephalic statues or useless, symbol of those Vestal Virgins who were to watch over the nearby temple of Vesta. The however lies in the fact that the signs that tell of the place are completely washed out, especially in the English text. Sin and beautiful at the same time!

  • Is the House of the vestals were guarding the sacred fire of Vesta (Goddess of the hearth). 6 people (originally four) was a priestess of Vesta because they were living together does not. House was right next to the Temple of Vesta. Chapel to the right of the entrance is built in white marble and brick, the altar was placed inside. Entrance and immediately courtyard, had two square ponds. Plenty of roses are planted around the pond. Courtyard surrounded by a portico on the north side was lined up successive maiden head statue. Miko 6 room room is located at the back of the courtyard at the end, on the South side had a kitchen and bathroom. You can still see the marks. It is ruins in the Roman Forum that clearly remains.

  • Best appreciated from the viewing platform in the gardens above.
  • The Vestal Virgins house is an incredible beautiful place!
  • Recommended for a nice view of the old monuments around Rome.
  • everyone got kicked out at 15:35 (in February)
  • It's amazing to imagine the grandeur of this place 2000 years ago.
