Commonly known as Tempio della Fortuna Virile, this historical landmark is originally called Tempio di Portunus (Temple of Portunus, Portunus being the God of Ports). It dates back to the Roman Republican era although it is believed to have been built around 3rd Century BCE. It is one of the few well-preserved and intact monuments of ancient Rome and is located at the port of Tiber next to the Temple of Hercules where once Forum Boarium thrived. The architectural style belongs to that of the Etruscan culture and retains the Ionic order.
