The hill was the religious heart of ancient Rome due to the presence of the Temple of Capitoline Jove, the main cult of the city from the time of the last kings.
On display are the remains of a number of religious and cult monuments, which were erected in the vicinity and dedicated by foreign peoples and representatives of the most prominent families
Fragments of large statues from a female cult are also displayed, and can be associated with some of the many sacred buildings which stood on the hill.
