  • This Obelisk is located on the back of Bernini's famous elephant. The Obelisk was found behind the Church in kostergården. The Church of s. Maria Minerva located on Sopa site is also worth a visit.

  • Obelisk in the middle of Piazza della Minerva, is characterized by the presence of this baby elephant made by Bernini. Very cute as embeds itself in the square.

  • Very weird and very funny :) i don't really know how to describe this place. You can seat next to it to watch it and try to understand. We didn't succeeded but you can try!
  • This is a fantastic specimen of Egyptian architecture. It depicts an obelisk on top of an elephant.
  • Had a great view of this pretty statue from the window of my suite. A great thing to wake up to each morning.
  • A fantastic land mark set in a beautiful square. Well worth seeing!
  • It's a fun little Bernini sculpture with found-object obelisk assemblage. Kind of surrealist for the 17th century, in my opinion. It's fanciful and very photogenic.
