Tempio Di Ercole Vincitore Reviews
Il tempio, conosciuto erroneamente di Vesta, è il più antico tempio in marmo conservato a Roma perché fu costruito la fine del II secolo a.C.

It has a circular shape with 20 Corinthian columns resting on a low podium of marble steps. It was dedicated to Hercules Winner, protector of the traders who carried out their activities in the nearby Boario Forum. Inside there is a fresco from the late 15th century depicting Our Lady with the Child and Saints. The temple can be visited on the 3rd Sunday of the month, only with a guided tour. The cost of the ticket is 5.50 euros.

That many, improperly, call "of Vesta", for a venial error, due to its circular shape, which makes it very similar to what is found in Tivoli. It is dedicated to the god protector of traders who carried out their activities within the Boario Forum, market area and trade right in the immediate vicinity of the Port Tiberino, in the time of the Empire. The small temple is surrounded by 20 Corinthian columns that rest on a low podium of marble steps, an architectural typology of Greek origin, enclosing an empty space and holding a slightly conical cover. Inside there are frescoes dating from the second half of the fifteenth century, depicting Our Lady with the Child and the Saints, and on the ground are deposited some sediment fragments found in the surrounding area.
Il Tempio di Ercole Vincitore posto in piazza Bocca della Verità , nell’area dell’antico Foro Boario , è il più antico tempio in marmo conosciuto di Roma antica ed arrivato quasi intatto sino ai giorn... more »The Temple of Hercules Winner placed in The Square Mouth of Truth, in the area of the ancient Boario Forum, is the oldest known marble temple of ancient Rome and arrived almost intact to this day. The circular building with 20 columns nearly 11 meters high, owes its name to Hercules Victor, patron of the oil corporation. Thanks to the FAI it was possible to visit it and appreciate it fully because it is almost always closed and in a state of abandoned seeds with high grass and various dirt, notable especially on the side that looks towards the Tiber. Already the FAI : thanks to its volunteers of the delegation of Rome and their perfect organization and self-sacrifice (the day was very hot and sultry), it was and will be possible to make visitable, with a lot of explanations, pearls like this magnificent temple otherwise denied because of the carelessness and the disrepute of responsibility of the authorities and bodies in charge.
These two temples are absolutely extraordinary. Each is a marvelous example of classical proportions. Exceptionally well preserved. According to legend, Romulus and Remus were raised in the marshes nearby or right in the spot. Hence that enormous Roman arena next door.
An ancient roman temple near the Tiber River composing a bucolic landscape between the traffic of Roman. It is worth stopping a few minutes to enjoy the view.
Located nearby the Tiber, in an area which one time was strongly associated with foreigners and trade due to its closeness to the river. This temple is one of the firsts examples of Greek style and architecture in Rome. I strongly recommend visit it. Free entrance, visitable h24.
One of the best preserved places from Ancient Roman era in the world
Public tap on site. Worth a stop before crossing the Tiber.
