About Vic Roman Temple

Vic Roman Temple is thought to date from the 2nd Century AD at the hight of the roman Empire. If The roman Temple was still in use by the 4th century it would have closed during the persecution of pagans as the Roman Empire was converting to Christianity. In the 11th century the temple was burried under the structure of the medieval els Montcada Castle, built to defend the medival city. The castle later became the residence of the Veguers and finally, the prison of Vic.
