Arch of Augustus (Aosta)
Latest update: 26 February 2022
The Arch of Augustus in Aosta was built in 25 BC to commemorate Rome's victory over the Gallic tribe called the Salassi, during the reign of the Emperor Augustus. The Emperor's name adorns not just the Arch, but the region itself: "Aosta" a derivative of Augustus.
In modern times the Arch stands at the centre of a roundabout at the edge of the city, close to the River Buthier.
