Public Buildings

Description

Most of the public buildings in Pompeii can be found grouped around the Forum which formed the civic and religious centre of the city. These buildings include the Basilica, the municipal offices, the market and the sanctuaries of various gods. Close by to the north and west are the public baths. To the south of the Forum is a second group of buildings which includes the Large Theatre, the Odeon and a triangular colonnade housing the oldest temple in the city. In the west of the city a third group of buildings consists of the Amphitheatre and the Large Palaestra.
