What people say

"The Largo di Torre Argentina, also known as Argentina Tower Square, is a fascinating archaeological site and public space located in the heart of Rome, Italy. Unearthed in the 16th century, the site reveals the remains of four Republican-era temples dating back to the 2nd and 1st centuries BC. These temples offer a glimpse into the religious and architectural practices of ancient Rome. The name "Torre Argentina" comes from a medieval tower (no longer standing) that was mistakenly believed to be part of the Theatre of Pompey, which is also located nearby."
"These ruins in Rome are particularly interesting because they are home to a large colony of cats. You can see them sunbathing, exploring the grounds and if you're lucky they might even come up and say "Ciao"!"
"If you're a cat lover or a history lover who wants to see where Ceasar was murdered, this is a must-visit! Largo di Torre is an untouched site of ancient Roman ruins and a cat sanctuary."
