I know Torre and Largo Argentina more for a bus stop than anything else. After fruitlessly seeking an actual torre, I was informed by a Roman that it is long gone. Oh well. At least the Cat Sanctuary is there, a cat-tivating (sorry) attraction to enjoy the gelato you got from nearby Gelateria Corona or a slice from Pizzeria Florida.

Out of everything I could do in Rome, this was perhaps my favorite thing. I .had never heard or read about a cat sanctuary in the middle of the city, but I was missing my own cats after a long trip. These cats aren't the sort to cuddle in your lap, though.
And, while admiring the kitties, I almost forget that they live among these amazing ruins. Rome is like that though; ruins are everywhere and you get numb to them.

Sorry for the cliche, but there really is nothing like this in the world. Come see where Julius Caesar was killed, and pet hundreds of stray cats while you're here. The ruins themselves are roped off to non-feline visitors, but you can walk around the huge square and see the ruins of the Pompey Theatre (the site of the assassination) and Roman columns from several ancient temples (third century BC). And then find the tiny set of stairs below, where you can enter the cat sanctuary. Rome is full of feral and stray cats who often prowl open ruin sites, and folks set up a no-kill sanctuary here to care for the critters. You can buy Roman cat souvenirs to support the sanctuary.

Every time I'm walking near by I have to go see the Cat Sanctuary to check who's there. Even if I have to walk longer, I always go see which cat is there and how they are enjoying their day laying in the sun. It is really a welcoming place for all cat lovers and anybody who enjoys feline’s company. The best feeling of all is to see them at peace, dominating the ancient Roman ruins with their silence look as if they always belonged to the site.
