Santuario della Fortuna Primigenia

Interesting
To give you an idea of the importance of the cult of the goddess Fortune, imagine that this grandiose 2C BC sanctuary occupied virtually the entire surface area of today's city! From the lower temple, on what used to be the forum, a basilical room still stands, with two side buildings, a natural grotto and an apse where the mosaic of the Nile was discovered. The site of the upper temple, on the present-day Cortina square, is occupied by the Barberini palace which houses the museum.
