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 di Portuno, it was built in the 2nd century BC. The little park around the temples have benches to rest weary feet.
