Roman Temple

The elegant white-marble columns, the last vestiges of this 1C temple, seem overwhelmed by the modern buildings surrounding them, and the whole makes for an anachronistic sight. The cannelated columns are each crowned with a Corinthian capital; excavations suggest that the temple, which stood on a podium, would have had a front portico and ten columns on each side, seven of which backed on to the cella of the temple where the statue of the god would have been. Looking at these remains, you can well imagine the splendour of Córdoba in Roman times.
