  • This forum deserve more attention, for here is some of the oldest monuments of Rome; two very ancient temples; Portunustempelet/Tempio di Portuno (also known as the Temple of Fortuna Virilis) built Ca. 100 BC. (which has rectangular form). It was devoted to the Roman God Portunus (the God of ports, doors, cattle and inventory). The second temple is: Tempio Rotondo (Il Tempio di Ercole Vincitore/The Temple of Hercules) that have round shape. This should not be confused with Vesta Temple which is located in the Roman Forum. The Forum was the place for the trading of cattle and there was favorable to, not only by the first bridges over the Tiber River, but also by the original main port in the city (Portus Tiberinus). It is said that the Forum Boarium was the site of the first gladiator competition in Rome, which took place in 264 f.Kr. are you near so visit the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin and the mouth of truth "Mouth of Truth" (of the Bocca della Verita ') that is located here.

  • Slightly off-center, South of the historical center of Rome, the Forum Boarium was yet one of the economic heart of ancient Rome. Two temples ancient and two arches are still standing. The round Temple or temple of Hercules the Temple of Portunus small rectangular temple place on a podium, add the Arch of Janus, the Arc of the changers and the fountain of the Tritons here outside visiting only a nice amount of monuments in little space once again lack of explanation on the spot of what was the heart of the ancient Roman economy is worth the trip away from the crowd and free

  • Bullish Forum is the oldest Roman market, which was located on the banks of the Tiber River. In ancient times here traded cattle, moored ships with goods from Ostia. Some well preserved buildings of that time is the Temple of Hercules and the Temple of Portunus.
