Its name is deceptive. Sadly, it cannot be counted as one of the Roman remenants in Sofia because it is an Ottoman construction. It used to form a part of a small square building, whose purpose is unclear.
The most reasonable assumption based on old maps is the building was of some importance to the Ottoman cemetery, which was located there before the Liberation of Sofia. Others speculate that it is a place where imam prayers wеre served before somebody goes on a pilgrimage.

The preserved wall was built in the typical Ottoman “cellular” construction – rectangular blocks of bricks. It also has two high window openings, facing west.

Nowadays The “Roman” Wall is surrounded by a market, which is in close proximity to the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy.
