Temple that is one of the most well-preserved in Croatia and Europe
The Temple of Augustus, and the ruins of the Temple of Diana, the Capitolo and the Basilica, or which were then integrated into the Communal Palace medieval architectural complex is the most significant historical part of the city of Pula. It is the only of its kind to be so well preserved in Croatia, and is something not so common in Europe as a whole. Forums, dominated by temples and basilicas, were the centers of the Roman cities, and at the same time, were the most significant social area. It was where people met to talk about important issues. The Capitolo temple, probably dedicated to Hercules, patron of the city of Pula, dominated it.
