An auguraculum (plural: auguracula), is a space in and from which the auspices were taken. The augurs were responsible for creating and inaugurating the auguracula.

Three permanent auguracula existed within Rome itself; on the citadel[1] , on the Palatine and on the Quirinal[2] . Auguracula were also established in other cities and in military camps.
