Venus is the
patron goddess of Pompeii and her sanctuary, from where one can enjoy a
view of the Gulf of Naples,
dominates the plain below. The earthquake of 62 A.D. destroyed the
edifice and its reconstruction was still in process when the eruption
occurred. The area was surrounded by arcades. Still existing in the
middle of the temple is its podium (29,15
x 15,5 m.).
