About Temple of Augustus – Barcelona

The Temple of Augustus is a poorly preserved first century AD Roman ruin hidden in Barcelona’s back streets.

Built in honour of the Emperor Augustus in the first century AD, all that remains of this temple are four main columns, hidden away within the medieval quarter in the courtyard of the Centro Excursionista de Cataluña.

When it was built, the Temple of Augustus would have been far more prominent and would have formed part of the Forum of Barcelona.
