Temple of Mars in Corseul

The Temple of Mars is an ancient Roman temple located in the town of Corseul in Brittany, France. It was built in the 2nd century AD and was dedicated to the Roman god of war, Mars.

The temple was part of a larger Gallo-Roman settlement known as Fanum Martis (meaning “Shrine of Mars”) and was one of the most important religious sites in the region during the Roman period. The temple was constructed using local stone and was designed in a typical Roman style with a rectangular floor plan and a porticoed facade.

The temple was in use for several centuries before it was abandoned during the 5th century AD following the decline of the Roman Empire. Today, the ruins of the temple can still be seen in Corseul, and it is a popular tourist attraction for those interested in Roman history and architecture.
