Beskrivelse

Mars temple ruins

This chapel has remains of the Roman temple dedicated to the God Mars.

It was built in the 17th century and the remains from the temple of Mars were added to the main front. It comprises of two marble columns, two capitals and floral motif reliefs and medallions with the head of Medusa.
