PORTICO OF OCTAVIA

Noted as the centre of the Jewish quarter of Rome, it was built by Augustus in the name of his sister sometime after 27 BC. The colonnaded walks of the portico enclosed the temples of Jupiter Stator and Juno Regina, as well as a library. The structure was used as a fish market from the medieval period, and up to the end of the 19th century: this role is remembered in the name of the nearby church of “the Holy Angel in the Fish Market”.
