Built in 16 B.C. by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, this is one of the best preserved temples from the Roman era. The impressive columned portico was restored to its original luster in the 19th century, and the façade is carved with classical ornaments of rosettes, leaves, and egg-and-dart decoration. What a beauty!
