Dating from 100 BC, the Temple of Portunus is, along with its neighbour the Temple of Hercules Victor, among the best preserved of Roman temples in the Eternal City. In ancient Rome, they were both part of the Forum Boarium. Although it has lost some of its original exterior stucco, the Temple of Portunus has survived largely intact due to its use as a church for much of its post-Roman life. It is located near the River Tiber just south of the Theatre of Marcellus.
