Largo di Torre Argentina

The Largo di Torre Argentina is a site within the Campus Martius where the remains of 4 ancient temples stand.  These temples were originally built between the 4th and 2nd centuries BC.  Two of the temples were constructed as recognition of battle victories.  The other two were dedicated to the Goddesses Feronia and Lares.  All four temples were restored in the 1st century AD.

Largo  di Torre Argentina is named for the city of Argentoratum, or Strasbourg, which was the hometown of Johannes Burckhardt, who was a priest in the inner circles of popes for about 20 years at the end of the 15th century.
