Unbelievable history abounds here, but don't forget the times they close, be sure to check with them or online. You want to give yourself plenty of time to absorb all there is to see here.

From the outside this is an understated temple, which I actually quite liked. With many of Rome's temples and churches being so opulent, an understated building is quite refreshing. This building won't blow your mind but it has a charm.

A temple (probably) dedicated to the deceased son of the Emperor Maxentius, not the Romulus of the legendary founding of Rome. The massive original bronze doors (now a green patina) sit between two porphyry columns, giving you a tiny glimpse into how ornate and grand...More

Everything about this structure stands out. Among elements of particular interest are the bright blue-green bronze doors and the circular structure (still very much intact). The name has nothing to do with Romulus (one of the twins found by the she-wolf and founder of Rome)...More

On Via Sacra, there are two structures that appear basically complete right next to each other. This rounded, 400 AD era temple was dedicated to "Divine Romulus," a son of Emperor Maxentius. The most striking feature are the bronze doors with red marble columns to...More
