The Arch of Constantine recalls the victory of Constantine I at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312, which marked the end of Rome's Civil War against Maxentius. The structure, 26 meters wide and 21 meters high, rises right next to El Coliseo.

Its state of conservation is fabulous and shows reliefs from the time of Marcus Aurelius, Trajan and Hadrian, all of them extracted from other existing monuments such as the Forum of Trajan or the Roman Forum.

The inscription that can be seen at the top of the Arch of Constantine reads as follows:
IMP · CAES · FL · CONSTANTINE · MAXIMUM · P · F · AVGUSTO · S · P · Q · R · QVOD · INSTINCTV · DIVINITATIS · MENTIS · MAGNITVDINE · CVM · EXERCITV · SVO · TAM · DE · TYRANNO · QVAM · DE · OMNI · EIVS · FACTIONE · VNO · TEMPORE · IVSTIS · REM-PVBLICAM · VLTVS · EST · ARMIS · ARCVM · TRIVMPHIS · INSIGNEM · DICAVIT
