Roman Forum, literally meaning "the Roman market," is also known under the name of Forum Magnum .
The square is located between the Palatine Hill, the Capitol and the Quirinal, and is one of the must see attractions in Rome.
It is a place where important events took place in ancient Rome. The Forum was the center of both civil and economic life. The square was also the place where various important buildings were erected, including the temple of Saturn, Dioscurean temple, the Concord temple, Temple of Caesar, Basilica of Aemilius, the temple of Romulus and the first of the triumphal arches - Fabias Arc, built in 121 BC, which unfortunately has not survived to our day. The last building raised on the Roman Forum was the column of Phokas.
Today they are only remnants of these great buildings, but they're still a reminder of the power of the ancient Rome.
