The Circ Roma dates back to the 1st century and is believed to be operational till the 5th century AD. It was used as a chariot racing track that was pulled by 2 or 4 horses. Riders would race around the arena which was protected by a wall that was 2 meters high to keep the audience at a safe distance from the track. At its peak, the circus would be able to seat nearly 30,000 spectators just like any modern arena today!
Much like the amphitheater, the Circus was one of the entertaining spots in the city. The building is 325 meters in length and around 100 meters in width. In a way, it is one of the earliest race tracks in the world and its structure and shape is something that has a strikingly similar to modern tracks as well.
The entire construction of the structure still astounds historians with its vaults made from cement, strongly supported stairs, a raised platform construction, internal corridors and carceres that led people into 12 rooms (6 of either side). The tower of the Circ Roman is a highlight for visitors and is a good spot to take in the panoramic views of the city. The place has a small museum and underground tunnels that complete the track. A walk along the illuminated vaults is a surreal experience and if you can, don’t forget to take a few pictures when you explore the place.
