(Presseportal openBroadcast) - A brief introduction
One of the biggest Barcelona points of interest is the Temple of Augustus. The temple was built was Barcelona was part of the Roman colony known as Barcino. It was built at approximately 1st century BCE (Before Common Era). It had been devoted to the Imperial Cult at the time of its construction. It was located at the axis of an area known as Forum. This was basically an arcaded square that included all the major public buildings of the city at that time. Incidentally, these buildings together were part of a cluster.
More points of interest
Apart from the church this square also included the bar that served as the meeting place for the municipal senate that was also known as Ordo Decurionum. It also included a market where all the goods from different parts of the Mediterranean were sold. The temple overlooks the city. It rises on a podium and you can access it with the help of a staircase. At the time of its construction, it was supposed to be the highest point of a small hill. It was known as Mons Taber and this was also the hill on which Barcino had been built. What remains of the temple is now located within a building that has four columns as well as a fluted shaft built in Corinthian style. The podium had an architrave as well.

Parc Guell is located at Gracia and as of 2017, it happens to be unfinished.
