Area sacra di Largo Argentina - Sacred Area of Largo Argentina

Area sacra di Largo Argentina

Opening out before one of Rome’s most important and oldest theatres, Teatro Argentina, and located in the middle of a rather busy road junction, is an archaeological site which was discovered as recently as 1920. Sunken below street level, it is covered with the remains of temples dating back to the age of the Roman  Republican. A colony of cats living amongst these ancient ruins is carefully looked after and protected by an association which feeds them and also organises free visits to the sacred area. Further information is available at or by telephoning 06/6872133. Not forgetting that Julius Caesar was assassinated not far from this archaeological site and Teatro Argentina in 44 B.C.
