Rome Sights

Tempio di Vesta

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 03/19/2014

Fodor's Review

Long called the Temple of Vesta because of its similarity in shape to the building of that name in the Roman Forum, it's now recognized as a temple to Hercules Victor. All but one of the 20 Corinthian columns of this evocative ruin remain intact. Like its next-door neighbor, the Tempio della Fortuna Virilis, it was built in the 2nd century BC. Recent city works have given the little park around the temple a new look, with lovely landscaped green space and benches for relaxing.
