Standing on the city’s car-free main square, which was once the Roman Forum, the Temple of Augustus was built between 2 b.c. and a.d. 14. The elegant façade comprises an open portico supported by six towering columns. The temple was dedicated to Octavianus Augustus, the first emperor of Rome. With the spread of Christianity, the temple was later converted into a church, but it no longer serves that function. Also on the Forum square you’ll find the Pula Tourist Office.
