Gang im Praetorium (Zugang zur Cloaca Maxima)

    Newer Older

    Das Praetorium war der Amtssitz des Statthalters in der Hauptstadt Köln „Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium“ der römischen Provinz Niedergermanien. Es handelte sich um den bedeutendsten offiziellen Bau der Stadt und den wichtigsten römischen Palast am Rhein. Bei den Arbeiten zum neuen Spanischen Bau 1953 stieß man auf die Fundamente des Praetoriums. Erhalten sind Reste aus allen Epochen des mehrphasigen Baus von der Zeit um Christi Geburt an. Komplett zugänglich und sichtbar sind aber vor allem die Mauern des monumentalen Palastes des 4. Jahrhunderts. Die Mauerreste des Praetoriums wurden so weit wie möglich ausgegraben, überdacht und bilden nun den „Keller“ des Spanischen Baus. Bei meinem Besuch in Köln Anfang April 2012 zeigten mir meine flickr-Freunde schreibtnix on 'n off und dolorix die Stadt. Es war ein intensives und sehr gutes Erlebnis, für das ich sehr dankbar bin.

    Corridor in the Praetorium (entrance tunnel to the Cloaca maxima). The Praetorium was the official residence of the governor in the capital of Cologne "Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium" of the Roman province of Lower Germany. It was the most important official building of the city and the most important Roman palace on the Rhine. At the work on the new Spanish building in 1953 the foundations of the Praetorium were discovered. Preserved are remains from all periods of the multi-phase construction from the time of Christ's birth. The walls of the monumental palace of the 4th Century Are are completely visible and accessible. The remains of the wall of the Praetorium were excavated as far as possible, covered, and now form the "basement" of the Spanish construction. During my visit to Cologne early April 2012 my flickr friends schreibtnix on 'n off and dolorix showed me the city. It was an intense and very good experience for me and I´m very grateful.

    I appreciate your visits, faves, constructive comments and invites! Thank you!

      Very well seen and of course very well photographed.
      Looking at your photo, beside the great perspective,
      the vanishing point (mentioned above) impresses me much.
      It is not just vanishing. At the same time it seems not to exist.
      This corridor seems to have an end and at the same time, same view, seems not ending!!!
      Great dear Renate !!!

      Sieht aus wie ein Bauwerk aus heutiger Zeit. Beeinduckend, wie korrekt man damals schon bauen konnte.
