Campo Boario is a wide area close to the former Rome slaughterhouse and in the past it was used to host the animals before their death and to handle the trades of livestock.

In these picture you can see the old watchtower used to monitor the whole area and the rised path for pedestrian used to cross the area being protected by livestock, mud and excrements.

It was opened in 1889 and closed in 1979. The project was done by the architect of Rome municipality Gioacchino Ersoch.
