  • Portunus, son of the goddess Mater Matuta, seems to belong to the cult of Janus because attached to port or with the House in General. Being able to represent the port as the port of entry and exit of goods, also became the God of ports. The temple is of Republican age and had been deliberately built near the sacred area within a Portus Tiberinus. Now located on an embankment obtained with the construction of new levees in 2nd century BC from its primitive construction dates back to 4TH/3rd century BC His cult was looked after by one of the twelve flamini minors, Flamen portunale while the Party (= Portunalia) was celebrated on 17 August and then the coincidence of this date with the one chosen for the Foundation of a temple of Janus suggests an affinity between the two gods. The highlight of the celebration of portunus foresaw the use of a key differently according to sources or current interpretations. In the sequence Temple of Hercules, the Temple of portunus, the twin temples of Fortuna and Mater Matuta and temples of Janus, of hope and of Juno Sospita, the building dedicated to Portunus was then find inserted into a whole very effective from the point of view of scenic and dedicated to the sacred. The rectangular Temple stands on a high podium covered with slabs of travertine, while the main front comes with four ionic columns always in travertine as the columns at the corners of the cell and bases and capitals of the columns. These twelve in number are Tuff as cell walls. It is one of the best preserved buildings of the Republican period because towards the end of the 9th century it was converted into a church Santa Maria de Gradellis which later became Saint Mary of Egypt. Recent renovations have fully discovered and developed a remarkable quality of the early Middle Ages frescoes depicting the life of Mary as well as derived from the apocryphal Gospels. In particular a face of our Lady of great beauty.

  • Break a little bit harder put well speaking ancient testifying like Rome obviously worn where the Colonnade in the temple architectural feel of femininity, from the wall is a very nice atmosphere feel at transition figure has decreased,. Close diagonally opposite of the mouth of truth a famous location. It is recommended that it also haunts the next to another circular Temple is now obsolete, so.

  • Saw it on way to restaurant. Nice
  • It's fine
  • Woohoo
  • The Temple of Portunus is a temple dedicated to "manly Fortune" (feted during the Renaissance, also from Machiavelli), the strength of the alea that creates opportunities.
