  • Castor and Pollux helped the Romans to turn the Latins in 496 f.Kr. under the Roman Republic (510-31 BC.), the temple was built in their honor. It is said that it was often held speeches outside the temple. The original temple was partially crushed and bricked into the in the new. Under the Roman Empire from 31 f.Kr. burned it in year 12 f.Kr. and set up the third reign of the temple (with marble) in year 6 e.Kr. and the temple got the Corinthian order, the remains that you see here today. It is also said that where the Roman Senate had their secret meetings here. In 1984, after hitting some shafts found coins from year 0 here. Recommend that you read about the temple before arriving here, exciting reading and you get more better idea of how things were.

  • To watch the three columns still standing you can try to imagine the life that throbbed around there and feel like Piero and Alberto Angela. An idea can come from the sloping platform steps, often used by those who spoke to the people, which shows a small door of a Barber/dentist. The foundations of the temples and the spaces between the columns, in fact, were often used for purposes unrelated to the cult, and here there was also an Office of weights and measures and banking terminals. Livy writes that at that time (509 BC) Tarquinius Superbus and sons had been expelled from the city after the rape of a young matron, Lucrezia. The outrage at this violence in all on this occasion to the discontent of many committed as beasts in the reclamation of the Valley of the Roman Forum and the implementation of the initial part of the Cloaca Maxima. The largest sewage collector of antiquity, 2500 years of service, still meets the Tiber at the broken bridge ... and for a segment is also open to visitors. The Tarquini, however, instead of surrendering to the reality organized a counter-revolution. Then-failed attempts--combined their armed gangs to those of the Etruscan town of Chiusi led by King Porsenna. Rome, besieged by those who wanted the restoration of the monarchy, he showed the tenacity and courage of its inhabitants (from Horatius Cocles to Clelia). The Etruscans decided to withdraw and abandon ' the proud ' to their fate, that materialized when he and allies of the Latin League was finally defeated at the battle of Lake regillus (508 BC) today. Here the story intersects the myth. During the final confrontation appeared among the two mysterious Roman Knights, Castor and Pollux, the twin sons of Zeus and Leda, beautiful in their armor and invincible. After his victory, seen by someone water the horses at source Juturna and then drift away forever. In memory of their intervention in the Forum was erected a temple, symbol of fall of the hated monarchy and the first seed of the future Republic (from res publica, ' public affairs '). It would be legendary confirms the Isola Tiberina, formed-pare-with the grain of the lands of Tarquini thrown into the Tiber in a shallow and easy accumulation with other debris and salt deposits. alfredodenicolais.

  • The Temple of Castor and Poljuksa, the Olympic gods Castor and Pollux stands on the Forum. Originally built in the 5th century BC, the building was altered many times. But residents of Rome subsequently (after the adoption of Christianity) disassembled it to the construction of churches and houses. Produces beautiful images.
