Imposing

For me, this is the most impressive arch in Rome. It's located on a road between Caelian Hill and Palatine Hill where they once celebrated victory marches. It's 21 meters high, 26 meters wide, and more than 7 meters thick. It was built in 315AD to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the reign of Constantine and his victory over Maxentius at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312AD. A restoration took place in 1804 and it is now decorated with medallions.

Constantine I is considered to be the first Christian Emperor since he converted to Christianity on his deathbed. This arch, however, makes no reference to this. The bottom of the arch is built from blocks of marble and the upper part is brick with marble trim. As far as the decoration goes, it's in accordance with other monuments of the time: Flavian columns, sculptures of Trajan, and roundels of Adrian. There are also reliefs of Constantine and a very detailed depiction of the battle.

Commemorating the battle of the milvian bridge

The Arch of Constantine is located at the foot of the Colosseum. It’s surrounded by a security fence since it was deteriorating because so many people were taking pieces of the arch as souvenirs. The triumphal arch was erected to commemorate the victory of Constantine the Great in the Battle of the Milvian Bridge on the 28th of October 312 AD. Dedicated in 315, it is the newest of Rome’s existing triumphal arches, but it's different since materials from older buildings were used to build it. The arch is 21 meters high, 25.7 m wide and 7.4 m deep.

Arch of constantine

The Arch of Constantine (Italian: Arco di Costantino) is a triumphal arch located between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill in Rome. He rose to commemorate the victory of Constantine the Great in the Battle of Milvian Bridge on 28 October 312, and other previous emperors. Dedicated in 315, is the most modern of the existing triumphal arches in Rome, from which it differs by having built thanks to the exploitation of previous buildings. The arch is 21 meters high, 25.7 m wide and 7.4 m deep. It has three arches, the central one being 11.5 m high and 6.5 wide, and 7.4 side high and 3.4 m wide each. The bottom of the monument is built with blocks of marble, while the top (called attic) is brick with marble tops. A certain height from the ground, on the side facing the Palatine, there is a door through which you access a staircase formed in the thickness of the arc. The general design with a main part structured by detached columns and an attic with the main inscription above is performed according to the example of the Arch of Septimius Severus in the Roman Forum. It has been suggested that the bottom of the arch comes directly from an earlier monument, probably from the time of Emperor Hadrian Arch Detail (south, left). The arc crosses the Via Triumphalis, the route taking the emperors when they entered the city in triumph. This route started at the Campus Martius, passed through the Circus Maximus and around the Palatine Hill, immediately after the Arch of Constantine, the procession would turn left at the Meta Sudans and march along the Sacred Way to the Forum Roman Capitoline Hill, passing both the Arch of Titus and Septimius Severus by.

Arco de constantino

El Arco de Constantino (en italiano, Arco di Costantino) es un arco del triunfo que se encuentra entre el Coliseo y la colina del Palatino, en Roma. Se irguió para conmemorar la victoria de Constantino I el Grande en la batalla del Puente Milvio, el 28 de octubre de 312, y a otros emperadores anteriores. Dedicado en 315, es el más moderno de los arcos triunfales alzados en la Roma Antigua, de los que difiere por haberse construido gracias al expolio de edificios anteriores.

El arco mide 21 metros de alto, 25,7 m de ancho y 7,4 m de profundidad. Tiene tres arcos, siendo el central de 11,5 metros de alto y 6,5 de ancho, y los laterales de 7,4 de alto y 3,4 m de ancho cada uno. La parte inferior del monumento está construida con bloques de mármol, mientras que la parte superior (llamada ático) es de ladrillo con remates de mármol. A cierta altura desde el suelo, en el lado que mira al Palatino, hay una puerta a través de la cual se accede a una escalera formada en el grosor del arco.
El diseño general con una parte principal estructurada por columnas adosadas y un ático con la principal inscripción encima está realizado según el ejemplo del Arco de Septimio Severo en el Foro Romano. Se ha sugerido que la parte inferior del arco proviene directamente de un monumento anterior, probablemente de los tiempos del emperador Adriano

Detalle del arco (zona sur, izquierda).
El arco cruza la Via Triumphalis, la ruta que tomaban los emperadores cuando entraban en la ciudad en triunfo. Este itinerario comenzaba en el Campo de Marte, pasaba por el Circo Máximo y alrededores de la colina Palatina; inmediatamente después el Arco de Constantino, la procesión giraría a la izquierda en la Meta Sudans y marcharía a lo largo de la Vía Sacra hacia el Foro romano y la colina Capitolina, pasando tanto por el Arco de Tito como por el de Septimio Severo.

The arch of constantine is located in...

The Arch of Constantine is located in the same place as the Colosseum of Rome, which makes it the shadow, but it is nonetheless an outstanding monument is one of the largest triumphal arches is retained in the ancient period. It was built to celebrate Constantine's victory over Maxentius's troops in the fourth century. Its appearance is imposing and what distinguishes particular is that it is composed of sculptures and ornaments from other monuments. The fundamental cause of this reconstruction, in the case of the Arch of Constantine, Rome was that at that time had lost its function as the capital for the benefit of Constantinople, now Istanbul. For this, many craftsmen of the Empire had problems finding the materials and to do the work which they were charged by the nobles of the city and its rulers. So it was easier to take pieces of what already existed to recompose in new buildings. It is not as big as the Arc de Triomphe Napoleon on the Place de l'Etoile in Paris, you can not go up to admire the view, however it is an impressive monument that has survived twenty centuries without damaging.

L´arc de Constantin est situé sur la même place que le colisée de Rome, qui lui fait de l´ombre, mais il n´en est pas moins un monument exceptionnel, c´est l´un des plus grands arcs de triomphe qui soit conservé de la période antique. Il a été construit pour célébrer la victoire de Constantin sur les troupes de Maxence au IVème siècle. Son aspect est imposant et ce qui le distingue tout particulièrement c´est qu´il est composé de sculptures et d´ornements provenant d´autres monuments.

La cause fondamentale de cette reconstruction, dans le cas de l´arc de Constantin, était que Rome a cette époque avait perdu sa fonction de capitale, au bénéfice de Constantinople, l´actuelle Istanbul. Pour cela, de nombreux artisans de l´Empire avaient des problèmes pour trouver des matériaux et pour réaliser les travaux dont ils étaient chargés par les nobles de la ville et les souverains. C´était donc plus simple de prendre des bouts de ce qui existait déjà pour les recomposer en de nouveaux monuments.

Il n´est pas aussi grand que l´arc de Triomphe de Napoléon sur la place de l´Etoile de Paris, on ne peut pas y monter pour admirer la vue, mais c´est toutefois un monument impressionnant qui a survécu a une vingtaine de siècles sans s´abimer.

This triumphal arch is located right next to the Colosseum. Is an arc of three starts, with a large central passage, and two smaller side. I built the Emperor Constantine I, after the battle of Ponte Milvio, in 312. The triumphal arch was opened three years later. Marble is constructed for the pillars, while only the top is covered marble. They have inspired the arch of Severus, located in the Roman Forum. The decorative themes are Victorious in the middle. The reliefs represent the emperor Marcus Aurelius, Hadrian and Trajan. It's beautiful at night, all lit up. In 1530, Lorenzo de Medici was expelled from Rome for damaging the bow. Now to prevent vandalism, the arc is protected by a fence around it, and you can get closer.

Este arco de triunfo se encuentra justo al lado del Coliseo. Es un arco de tres aperturas, con un pasaje central grande, y dos laterales más pequeños. Lo construyó el emperador Costantino I, después de la batalla del Ponte Milvio, en el año 312. El arco de triunfo se inauguró 3 años más tarde.

Está construido con mármol para los pilares, mientras la parte de arriba solamente está cubierta de mármol. Se han inspirado del arco de Severo, que se encuentra en el foro Romano. Los temas decorativos son de la Victoria en la parte central. Los relieves representan el emperador Marco Aurelio, Adriano, y Trajano. Es bonito de noche, todo iluminado.

En 1530, Lorenzo de Medicis fue expulsado de Roma por haber dañado el arco. Ahora para evitar el vandalismo, el arco está protegido por una reja que lo rodea, y no te puedes acercar más.

The medallions come from an unknown monument erected to Hadrian, high reliefs of a monument to Marcus Aurelius. The inside of the arch and the side just a frieze sculptures in honor of Trajan, his campaign against the Dacians. The eight statues of Dacians are the same age.

At night, it is amazing that day, limit prettier.

L'arc de constantin

L’Arc de Constantin de Rome fut construit en 315 en l’honneur de la victoire de Constantin sur Maxence à la bataille du pont Milvius en 312. Les reliefs proviennent de monuments romains plus anciens, le pourtour des arches et leurs pieds datent de Constantin. Les médaillons proviennent d’un monument inconnu érigé pour Hadrien, les hauts reliefs d’un monument de Marc-Aurèle. L’intérieur de l’arche ainsi que les sculptures latérales viennent d’une frise en l’honneur de Trajan, de sa campagne contre les Daces. Les huit statues de Daces sont de la même époque.

Elle se situe juste à coté du Colisée ( Article sur le Colisée ), vous ne pouvez pas la louper. La photo de jour a été prise du Colisée, un petit balcon a été aménagé pour admirer la vue. De nuit, elle est aussi étonnante que de jour, limite plus jolie.

This arch, located in the same square Coliseum is one of the largest that have been preserved. It was built to celebrate the victory of Constantine over Maxentius's troops in the fourth century. It looks awesome and what makes him so remarkable is that it is composed of sculptures and decorated in various buildings. Recall that, until the nineteenth century it was very common to build new buildings spoliation. The fundamental cause of this plundering, for Constantine Arch Rome was that at that time had lost its function in benficio capital of Constantinople. So many craftsmen of the Empire had material problems and subsistence. It was easier to take ready-made works and readjust.

Este arco, situado en la misma plaza del Coliseum, es uno de los más grandes que se han conservado. Fue construido para celebrar el triunfo de Constantino sobre las tropas de Majencio en el siglo IV. Su aspecto es imponente y lo que le hace muy destacado es que está compuesto de esculturas y decorados de diversas edificaciones. Recordemos que, hasta el siglo XIX era muy frecuente el expolio para construir nuevas edificaciones. La causa fundamental de este expolio, en el caso del arco de Constantino fue que Roma en esa época había perdido su función de capital en benficio de Constantinopla. Por eso, los numerosos artesanos del Imperio tenían problemas de materiales y de susbsistencia. Resultaba más fácil tomar obras ya hechas y readaptarlas.

From its 21 meters Arc is dedicated to Constantine and his victory against Maxentius in the 4th century. The different parts of the arc are from very ancient times the time of Trajan, Hadrian or Marcus Aurelius. You can read Latin inscriptions as the other Roman monuments.

Au pied du Colisée se dresse un arc de triomphe, qui n'a rien a envier au notre ! En effet il est bien plus travaillé et orné que celui de Paris. Du haut de ses 21 mètres l'Arc est dédié à Constantin et sa victoire contre Maxence durant le 4ème siècle.

This monument marks the boundary between the Roman Forum and the Coliseum area. It was built in 315 AD in memory of the victory of Constantine against Maxentius. There is an interesting inscription on it, which tells about the events of Constantine under the inspiration of a deity, without any specific information about it. The fact is peculiar because Constantine, who was not a Christian, was benevolently to Christianity and promoted its expansion. It is the largest of the three triumphal arches in Rome, 25 mt.De height. The maximum span of the core barrel vault is 6.5 mt. High. It was built at a time when the decline of Rome began pro Constantinople is therefore greatly reduced the wealth of the city, the construction activity is almost over, and the same materials used for the construction of the arch had been taken from other monuments. Both ended statues as decorations that were placed at first were used elsewhere too. Definitely this arch was built splendid trying to save as much as possible.

Este monumento marca el límite entre el Foro romano y el área del Coliseo. Fue construido en el 315 A. D. En memoria a la victoria de Constantine contra Maxentius. Hay una inscripción interesante sobre ello, que cuenta sobre los hechos de Constantine bajo la inspiración de una divinidad, sin cualquier dato específico sobre ello. El hecho es peculiar porque Constantine, que no era cristiano, se mostró benévolamente al cristianismo y promovió su expansión. Es el mayor de los tres arcos del triunfo en Roma, 25 mt.De altura. El palmo máximo de la bóveda de barril central es 6,5 mt. De altura. Fue construido en un tiempo en el cual la decadencia de Roma comenzó pro Constantinopla; por esta razón se redujo mucho la riqueza de la ciudad, la actividad de construcción prácticamente se acabó, y los mismos materiales usados para la construcción del arco habían sido tomados de otros monumentos. Tanto las estatuas de composición como las decoraciones que le fueron puestas en un principio fueron usadas en otra parte también. Definitivamente este arco espléndido fue construido tratando de ahorrar tanto como fuera posible.
