On the Way to the Colosseum…
Jun 2022
There’s not a lot left of this basilica which was built by the Emperor Trajan between 106 - 113AD. It’s just one of several ruins that make up Trajan’s Forum and sits alongside Trajan’s Column and Marketplace. Only a row of the basilica’s columns remains today. Nevertheless it is worth a quick look mainly because it is very close to the Colosseum and can be easily seen from the public footpath. If you are walking along the Via dei Fori Imperiali (the street of the Imperial Forums) towards the Colosseum, you’ll pass right by it. As there is so little left, it’s tricky to appreciate without knowing something about the basilica beforehand. Most importantly, and somewhat confusingly, it is not a church basilica. There was no religious purpose to the building at all. Instead it was a place of business - a civil building where financial, commercial and judicial activities took place. This particular basilica was the largest and most lavish in Rome at the time. In its day, it would have been massive and was around 170 metres long, with many, many more columns. The main hall probably had a double surround of 96 columns in white or yellow marble. Ancient sources describe a roof made of bronze and old Roman coins show giant statues of horse drawn chariots decorating the building. All of this takes a bit of imagination these days but altogether, there’s still enough of the forum ruins to hint at just how large and impressive it must all have been.

The name maybe makes you think to a church but in Ancient Rome This Basilic was an administration center .
This was the biggest Basilic ever built.

The Basilica Ulpia located in the Forum of Trajan was an ancient Roman civic building. It had no religious function but was dedicated to the administration of justice, commerce and the presence of the Emperor. All that are left standing today are columns and part of the central nave.

Fascinating ruins. It was an important basilica during Roman Empire period. This basilica did not have anything to do with a church, however, as it had roles as a political and judicial gathering place instead.

This Basilica, at the time of construction, was the largest in Rome. It is located within Foro di Traiano, named after his family, and was inaugurated in 112 AD. The western apse is under Via del Fori Imperiali and the eastern end is under the buildings. All that remains to be seen today are the central section and the supporting columns

Basilica Ulpia is an area full of ruins today. It is in that part of the ground on your right, as you walk down Via dei Fori Imperiali, from, say, the Colosseum, towards Piazza Venezia. It is a rather lovely sight. As you walk you can see so many ruins, columns and parts of ancient buildings, and you can cast your imagination back to those Roman times and recreate in your mind what it might have been like! This building would have been a very important place where legal matters would take place. It would have been law courts and rooms for various meetings. A hive of activity! Perhaps you can hear the Romans speak! Definitely worth looking out for. You can see all this from street level, no need to "get in". This basilica was named in honour of Emperor Trajan, as one of his names was Ulpius, and this was his Forum.

I saw the Basilica Ulpia whilst viewing Trajan's Forum and Trajan's Column during my fascinating three hour tour of Rome with Italy Segway. I was on a weekend visit to Rome with friends from Bwrdd Crwn Caergybi, Cymru / Holyhead Round Table, Wales on our annual rugby trip in the RBS 6 Nations series, choosing the Italy v. Wales match this year. This was my fourth visit to Rome but my first visiting the historical sites on a Segway! It was also my first outing on a Segway and Mattio (Matt) our tour leader patiently took our group of eight through our paces to ensure that we were all familiar and competent to ride this amazing mode of transport. After some tuition and practice under his expert guidance, I was ready to take my Segway on to the hectic streets of Rome!

Matt carefully and safely led our group on his Segway whilst sharing with us his knowledge via the wireless headphones we had all been given. Among the many historical sites I enjoyed were the Arch of Constantine, Circus Maximus, Colosseum, Palantine Hill, Parco Savello and it's Orange and Rose Garden, Roman Forum, Santa Maria's Church and it's Bocca della Verita wall sculpture, Trajan's Column as well as Trajan's Forum and the Basilica Ulpia. Matt explained that this civic building was one of the largest ever built in Rome and is dedicated to the Emperor Trajan. It apparently featured an impressive central nave with four aisles, the walls and columns built from precious marbles under a huge 50 metre high roof. All that remains today for the visitor to see are some of the foundations and fragments from the walls and columns. However, if you are visiting Trajan's Column, it's worth taking the opportunity to view this ruined building nearby - it ticked another box on the long list of places we visited. I enjoyed this educational and fun filled ride around Rome with Matt and it offered good value at 75 Euros per person.

A basilica was a Roman hall of justice and administrative purposes and this one is probably the most important ancient basilica, named after the Emperor Trajan, whose full name was Marcus Ulpius Traianus. With its layout and dimensions (117 by 55 meters) it became the model for building the churches.

Basilica Ulpia was not a religious site as the name might suggest, but was a administrative building after moving from the Roman Forum to the newly constructed Forum of Trajan in early 100 AD. The two Forums are close together though, about a 5 minute walk separates. The building was huge at 385ft x 182ft and part of the original foundation remains under the roads nearby. There really isn't a lot to see on the site- the foundation is clearly below current ground level; there are several rows of partially rebuilt marble columns (20 of them) with lots of building pieces laying about. Free to visit!

As Basilica Ulpia is free to view and photograph, why not see it on your way to visit the Colosseum and several of the forums in the area? I wouldn't have the thought this hole in the ground which contained many columns would have been of much import, but was lucky enough to be able to speak to an Italian policeman who explained to me that this Basilica, designed by Apolodorius, once contained the state archives and two libraries--one of them Latin and the other Greek. It is located in Foro Trajano (Trajan's Forum).
