The establishment of the Roman Forum against the western flank of the hill Arles requires the construction of major substructures to firmly establishing a large terrace.

The northern part of the underground galleries, called the Cryptoportiques, passes under the Place du Forum currently under the southern part of the Town Hall.

Around the plaza so constituted, was built upon installation of the Roman colony founded in 46 BC. by Julius Caesar, a great colonnade surrounding a paved public square and monumental complex who combined administrative, judicial, economic and religious functions of the Roman city.

A temple, which remains here two columns and a piece of pediment, was built in the second century AD and its facade rebuilt two centuries later. It is the only still existing remnant elevation of the Forum Arles. In the fourth century, on the north side, a gallery, arcades with shops opened on this site, the remains of which are buried six meters below the present site of the Forum.
