Ruin
The Temple of Saturn is a temple to the god Saturn in ancient Rome. The original dedication of a temple to Saturn was traditionally dated to 497 BC, but ancient writers disagreed greatly about the history of this site. The ruins of the temple stand at the foot of the Capitoline Hill in the western end of the Forum Romanum.ArchaeologyGradual collapse has left nothing but the remains of the front portico standing. The partially preserved pediment displays the inscription Senatus Populusque Romanus incendio consumptum restituit, meaning "The Senate and People of Rome have restored consumed by fire". The pediment and eight surviving columns represent one of the iconic images of Rome's ancient architectural heritage.HistoryConstruction of the temple is thought to have begun in the later years of the Roman Kingdom under Tarquinius Superbus. Its inauguration by the Consul Titus Lartius took place in the early years of the Republic. The temple was completely reconstructed by Munatius Plancus in 42 BC.

  • Nestled in the grounds of the Roman Forum where everything is beautiful and takes you 2000 years ago. It is best to activate the maps to locate you and access information, or take the Guide hand.

  • One of the symbols of the Roman Forum, widely photographed from all positions, it is also among the oldest buildings in the area, was opened in 497 BC. Unfortunately remain the podium finish in 42 BC and eight ionic columns that do imagine the lightness and elegance of this place of worship.
