The tomb of Emperor Augustus, this historical site had a venerated past before falling into disrepair. Its construction was ordered by the Emperor himself. It has been celebrated in the famous poem Ozymandias. It has a circular structure with vaults and obelisks. A statue of Augustus may also have been at the top. The site also commemorates Emperor Augustus' victory in the battle of Actium. In 410 BCE, the tomb was ransacked and damaged by the Visigoths. Today it is covered with weeds and tourists are not allowed to see the interiors, however its formidable structure stands testament to its past glory.
