The Temple of Augustus is a building from the ancient Roman period. There are not many things left now. There are a few Roman stone pillars and a piece of head. The wall introduces its origin, but to be honest, there is really nothing to see.
There are only four pillars left and it is not worth looking at. Fortunately, no tickets are required. It is just north of Saint-Rome Square, so you can stop by.
Not the easiest sight to locate in Barcelona (behind the Cathedral, down a side street and inside a modern-day building), but the first-century temple dedicated to Caesar Augustus is a relic well worth the quest. Four tall Corinthian columns stand somewhat incongruously on a podium, stirring up scenes from ‘Barcino’s’ distant past as a Roman colony. The ancient Temple of Augustus stood very close to the present-day civic square of Sant Jaume, and with the columns still in remarkably good nick, is a fascinating detour for history lovers exploring the city’s Gothic quarter.
