Area Sacra di Largo Argentina

Area Sacra di Largo Argentina is a small, however, fascinating archaeological site in the Italian capital. During the course of building works carried out in the 1920's, four Roman Republican-era temples were found in the square of largo di Torre Argentina. The remains of the four temples of Area Sacra di Largo Argentina, now called Temples A,B,C and D, include various columns, platforms and walls. 

The oldest temple of this complex is temple C that was built in the early half of the 3rd century BC. The current occupants of the Area Sacra di Largo are not Romans, but cats -stray cats to be precise.
