Along the Appia Antica we can see many elements and monuments that bear witness to the history of Rome: the best known of these from republican and imperial times are Terme di Caracalla (although this is outside the Park) Porta San Sebastiano and the Mura Aureliane, the Tomba di Geta, the Sepolcro di Priscilla, the Circus and Massenzio's imperial palace, Cecilia Metella's huge round mausoleum, the Villa dei Quintili, the large cylindrical sepulchre, known as Casal Rotondo; there are catacombs that date back to the first centuries of Christianity such as those of S. Callisto, Domitilla (on the edge of the Park), S. Sebastiano, (the Basilica above this is very popular with visitors) and Pretestato; there are numerous medieval, renaissance and baroque churches along the way, Santa Maria in Palmis, well known by the name Quo vadis; mediaeval towers and fortifications, often built on the ruins of Roman monuments, like the castle built by the Tuscolo counts around the sepulchre of Cecilia Metella.
The Park territory also takes in Valle della Caffarella, with the river Almone running through it, this is the most important scenic element reflecting ancient agricultural use close to the city, but it also has a wealth of important monuments from a variety of periods like the temple of the god Redicolo, the Ninfeo di Egeria, the church of Sant'Urbano, the medieval towers; the Tombe Latine and the Parco degli Acquedotti, with the imposing ruins of the conduits that supplied the city with water.
