The Sun Sets Over Ancient Ruins

So, Toledo has this Roman Circus, built 2,000 years ago, and half dug out. It’s the second biggest one unearthed in Spain.

It’s located in a public park, so we have free access to the ruins. I took a couple of shots at sunset:

This is the plan, so you get an idea of the shape and scale of it. As you can see, it was a race course, rather than a circular installation.
