The Area Sacra near the Largo Argentina was a republican forum in ancient Rome, with the remains of four temples now visible in the centre of the piazza. They form part of the larger Campus Martius (Field of Mars) complex that included the Baths of Agrippa and the Theatres of Pompey and Balbus. The temples were rediscovered and excavated between 1926 & 1928 and date originally to the 4th – 2nd centuries BC, although the visible floor levels are from a later phase of repairs around AD80.

In the foreground here is the circular Temple B, the latest of the structures, believed to have been dedicated to the goddess Fortuna, whilst behind it is the Temple of Juturnus (or Juno Curtis) built in the mid-3rd century BC by Catulus during the Punic Wars.
