Forum Boarium, Rome: 33 reviews and 71 photos
Located in the Forum Boarium, the Arch of Janus was built in the 4th century AD. It is thought to have been originally dedicated to Constantine. In medieval times and until the 19th century, a Roman family used the arch as a fortress, which helped to preserve the structure. Originally, the arch was crowned with a pyramidal structure, which was torn down around 1830, as it was thought - perhaps mistakenly - not to belong to the original Roman structure.
