"Temple Dating to 2nd Century"

Temple of Hercules Victor dates back to the end of the 2nd Century and has remained more or less intact. The 19 out of 20 Corinthian columns which surround it survived but the trabeation and the original roof (probably a dome) are missing. The temple is commonly known as the Temple of Vesta. It was turned into a church under Christianity, and was first dedicated to Santo Stefano delle Carozze and then, halfway through the 16th Century, to Santa Maria del Sole, because an image of the temple emanating a ray of sunlight had been found in the Tiber.
