largo di Torre Argentina
Largo di Torre Argentina is a popular square in Rome named after the older name of Strasbourg—Argentoratum. It is famous for the four Roman temples built at various periods in time, the recent one being the temple devoted to Lares Permarini built in 2nd century BC. But this is not the only reason why it is well-known. The Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary or the home of homeless cats, is also situated in this Piazza. So you will find a lot of cats sleeping or basking in the sun beside each other, while the cat friendly passersby drops food for them on the cobbled streets. Though these cats look cute in the day, they haunt the square at night with their grey and green eyes glowing in the dark!
