From the outside this is an understated temple, which I actually quite liked. With many of Rome's temples and churches being so opulent, an understated building is quite refreshing. This building won't blow your mind but it has a charm.

The Temple of Romulus is in better complete condition than most within the Roman Forum, the striking door setting the tone

This is well preserved in an area where you need your imagination. This building tells its own story. I still recommend the forum tour.

This is not the Temple of the more famous Romulus, but for the son of Maxentius. It is accessible via the church it is attached to, but not through the forum entrance. These doors are said to be original and from the 4th Century and...More

A temple (probably) dedicated to the deceased son of the Emperor Maxentius, not the Romulus of the legendary founding of Rome. The massive original bronze doors (now a green patina) sit between two porphyry columns, giving you a tiny glimpse into how ornate and grand...More

Everything about this structure stands out. Among elements of particular interest are the bright blue-green bronze doors and the circular structure (still very much intact). The name has nothing to do with Romulus (one of the twins found by the she-wolf and founder of Rome)...More

Historians think that originally the building was not a temple but the circular vestibule of access to the Temple of Piece, which was located at the large square arranged as a garden. In the 4th century, the Emperor Maxentius reused the vestibule of then abandoned...More

On Via Sacra, there are two structures that appear basically complete right next to each other. This rounded, 400 AD era temple was dedicated to "Divine Romulus," a son of Emperor Maxentius. The most striking feature are the bronze doors with red marble columns to...More

Basilica located in the Roman Forum just below Palatine Hill. Dedicated by Emperor Maxentius to his son Valerius Romulus. Very cool must visit church.
