There are two temples on the opposite side of the Truth Square, one is the circular temple of Hercules the Victor, the other is the rectangular temple of Portunus, and the temple of Hercules the Victor has a circle on it. Like a hat. The circular temple is surrounded by Greek-style columns, and there are still remnant frescoes on the altar. Hercules is synonymous with Hercules in the Western world, but the temple where he is worshipped is more compact.
The Temple of Hercules the Victor is dedicated to the god Hercules. It is also located in the Bull-slaughter Square, opposite the Kosmedin Church. I like this round temple better than the temple of Portunus with a square spire next to it. The elongated Greek pillars make the temple look elegant and sacred, and there are some exquisite carvings on the top of the pillars near the roof.
The Temple of Hercules is located in Bull Square, diagonally opposite the Mouth of Truth. This is a circular ancient Roman temple building surrounded by ancient Greek style columns. The Temple of Hercules was built around 120 BC and is still very well preserved. All the pillars and circular platforms are still the same as they were back then, but the roof is not the original roof. There is also the Temple of Portolus next to it, probably all built during the same period.
The Temple of Hercules the Victor is a small temple dating back to the century BC on the square. It is the oldest marble temple in Rome with a statue of Heracles. It was a major commercial area in ancient times. It is a pity for tourists. Can't enter this temple.
Introduction to the Temple of Hercules the Victor: The Temple of Hercules the Victor (Italian: Tempio di Ercole Vincitore) is a round ancient Roman temple building located in the Forum Boarium in Rome, Italy. ), because the temple was surrounded by Greek-style colonnades, it was once mistaken for the Temple of Vesta.
I see various temples everywhere in Rome. I think it may be necessary to learn the content of Roman mythology before I can have a better understanding of it.
