Largo di Torre Argentina

 

 

Description

Largo di Torre argentina is a busy transport hub of Rome.

It hosts the sunken sacred area and  the remains of four Republican-era temples.

The name of the square comes from the Torre Argentina.  In 1503, the Papal master of ceremonies Johannes Burckardt, who came from Strasbourg and was known as “Argentinus”, built in via del Sudario a palace (now at N. 44), called Casa del Burcardo, to which the tower is annexed.

Torre Argentina also contains part of the famous Theater of Pompey, upon whose steps Julius Caesar was betrayed and killed in 44 BC.

These ruins are off-limits to humans but home to a thriving population of 250 stray cats!
