The remains (four columns) of a Roman temple dating back to the first century BC are to be found just off the Plaça Sant Jaume [map], which was the approximate location of the forum of the Roman settlement of Barcino.

The remains of the temple were restored between 1903 and 1905, under the guidance of Lluis Domènech i Montaner [Wikipedia], one of the less well-known works of one of Barcelona's major Modernista architects.

Today, as they have been since the 14th century, the columns are enclosed inside another building, which undoubtedly accounts for their survival.
