The Basilica Opimia was one of the four basilicas in the Forum Romanum in the late Roman Republic. It was built in 121 BCE by the consul L. Opimius, besides the Temple of Concord, which was restored on the same occasion by Opimius.

When the Temple of Concord was rebuilt by Tiberius, both the old Temple of Concord and the Basilica Opimia were demolished to make room for the new temple.

See this map for an illustration of the probable location of the building.

There is nothing visible left of the Basilica Opimia.
