AreaIn the sumptuous splendor of ancient Rome, the area "Borghi" was populated with villas and gardens, including the famous "horti of Agrippina" and "Domizia Lepida". In the age of Domitian and Trajan a circus for naval battles was erected , the "naumachia", of which considerable remains were discovered between Castel Sant'Angelo and Piazza Risorgimento. Also in this area, specifically on the left side of the Basilica of St. Peters, the Circus of Caligula was built. The Circus was built inside the Villa of Agrippina Maggiore and welcomed horse races and chariots. At one end of the circus the great obelisk transported from Egypt was located, now this obelisk is in the center of St. Peter's Square. With Christianity the "Borghi" become the center of fervid religious activity, the basilica was built by Constantine. Between 1935 and 1937 the "spine" of Borgo was demolished to make way for the current Via della Conciliazione. North of the Via della Conciliazione, the neighbourhood was able to keep until recently its folk character, however on the south side the neighbourhood shows a completely different face: there are only offices (especially belonging to the Vatican), an auditorium, and the large 'hospital of the Holy Spirit. The pedestrian area is called Borgo Pio where there are several restaurants, bars and shops selling religious articles and objects of religious art: crucifixes, crosses, religious icons, rosaries, statues.
