I really liked the ruins of Temple of Saturn, for some reason. I spent a lot of time in this place, looking at the temple and admiring everything around it.

The legend says that an altar was built at the foot of the Capitol Hill for Saturn and that a temple was erected on the same site. People use to bring grains, wool, oil and the first fruit the trees produced in a year to this god (Saturn).

Address: inside Roman Forum
Directions: you will find the temple located at the West end of the Roman Forum, at the base of Capitol Hill

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
