How to get there



Colosseum History

The Flavio Colosseum or Amphitheater is an amphitheater from the Roman Empire, built in the first century and located in the center of the city of Rome. Its original denomination, Flavio Amphitheater, refers to the Flavia dynasty of emperors who built it; its later name, Colosseum, and by which it is best known today, is due to a large statue that was nearby, the Colossus of Nero, which has not reached us. For its conservation and history, the Colosseum is one of the most famous monuments of classical Antiquity. It was declared a World Heritage Site in 1980 by Unesco and one of the New Seven Wonders of the Modern World on July 7, 2008.

The materials used in the construction of this are travertine blocks, concrete, wood, brick, stone (tuff), marble and stucco. In ancient times it had a capacity for about 65,000 spectators, with eighty rows of stands. Those who were close to the arena were the Emperor and the senators, and as they ascended the lower strata of society were located. In the Colosseum, gladiator fights and public spectacles took place. It was built just east of the Roman Forum, and the works began between 70 d. C. and 72 d. C., under the mandate of Emperor Vespasian. The amphitheater, which was the largest ever built in the Roman Empire, was completed in 80 AD. C. by Emperor Titus, and was modified during the reign of Domitian. Its inauguration lasted 100 days, participating in it all the Roman people and dying in its celebration dozens of gladiators and beasts that gave their lives for the pleasure and spectacle of the people.

The Colosseum was used for almost 500 years, celebrating the last games of history in the sixth century, much later than the traditional date of the fall of the Roman Empire in the West in 476 AD. C. The Byzantines also used it during the sixth century. In addition to the gladiatorial fights, many other public shows took place here, such as shipwrecks, animal hunting, executions, reenactments of famous battles and plays based on classical mythology. The building ceased to be used for these purposes in the High Middle Ages. Later, it served as a refuge, factory, seat of a religious order, fortress and quarry. Abundant material was extracted from its ruins for the construction of other buildings, until it was converted into a Christian sanctuary, in honor of the martyred captives during the early years of Christianity. This measure helped to stop his plunder and to keep it.

Although the structure is seriously damaged due to earthquakes and stonecutters, the Colosseum has always been seen as an icon of Imperial Rome and is one of the best preserved examples of Roman architecture. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in modern Rome and is still closely linked to the Catholic Church, so the Pope heads the viacrucis to the amphitheater every Good Friday.
