Forum of Nerva is the third of the Roman imperial forums.
The construction of the Forum began under Emperor Domitian, and ended only in 98 under Emperor Nerva. Subsequently, in honor of this emperor, the Forum got its name. The Forum was built between the Temple of Peace and the Forum of Augustus, it also connected the Roman Forum and Aguilete Street.
Previously, the Forum housed the Temple of Minerva, which was destroyed in 1606 by the order of Pope Paul V, to free the territory for the construction of the Borja Chapel, the Acqua Paola fountain and the Column Hall.
Nowadays, only two preserved granite columns, a relief depicting Minerva and part of the walls can be observed here.
