The Colosseum, known in Antiquity as the Flavian Amphitheater is an amphitheater in the center of Rome that is capable of seating 50,000 people. It was built by the ruler Vespasian on the remains of the "Golden House" ofthe previous emperor, Nero.

The collosseum was spared from destruction in the 18th century when it was declared a sacred site by the Roman Catholic Church due to the martyrdoms that took place there.
