Roman Temple

Standing proud and dignified to this day, Cordoba’s grandest Roman remains will take you on a marvelous trip back to a long-gone era. 

Córdoba’s Roman Temple remains are extraordinary in their grandeur, design and rarity. Although the ruins were rediscovered fairly recently, it is estimated that the original building took place during the 1st century. The ruins were discovered during the building of the city hall in the 1950s. See this rare evidence of a Roman temple in Córdoba.

The original building was located on a podium and had many large columns. Marvel at the ancient remains, which include the foundation, the stairs, the altar and several columns. These remains suggest that the original building was absolutely huge. 

Head to the city hall to get a closer look at the foundations. They were crafted using an unusual fastening technique that enabled the massive weight of the construction above to stand on a solid base. Because the main building material was marble, this additional support was essential.

Some pieces of the temple have been reconstructed by the architect Félix Hernández; this adds to the overall effect of the remains and gives an idea of the scale of the original building. Picture what must have been the imposing and powerful structure towering over the rooftops of Córdoba 2,000 years ago.

Today the temple is still being excavated, so there is likely much more to discover. Stroll around Córdoba and spot some of the pieces that have already been found. These relics are on display in different places throughout the city, including the Plaza de las Doblas, which flaunts some pieces of columns.

Several pieces are also on display at the Museo Arqueológico (Archaeological Museum), which is less than a 10-minute walk away. Visit for its other archaeological and historic exhibits as well. Here you will embark on a journey through 3,000 years of this region’s rich and varied history.

Córdoba’s Roman Temple is an open-air attraction; visit it at any hour. It is located in the historical center just minutes away from many of Córdoba’s prime attractions. While you’re in the area, it is definitely worth visiting.
