House of the Vestal Virgins, Roman Forum

Roman Forum - House of the Vestal Virgins, Rome, Italy. The House of the Vestal Virgins was the residence of the Vestal Virgins, located behind the circular Temple of Vesta at the eastern edge of the Roman Forum, between the Regia and the Palatine Hill. The complex lay at the foot of the Palatine Hill, where a sacred grove that was slowly encroached upon lingered into Imperial times, when all was swept away by the Fire of Rome in 64 CE.
