Augusta Raurica
Schönbühl Temple

Facing the theatre, the Schönbühl hill was a religious area with several small temples, then around 70 AD a massive temple surrounded by columns, erected on a podium and probably dedicated to the emperor and Roman deities. Towards the end of the 3rd century, the temple was abandoned and some of the blocks were reused in other buildings. Today, only the centre of the podium remains, with cavities on the sides that indicate the former locations of the columns.
