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!
A fantastic land mark set in a beautiful square. Well worth seeing!
Had a great view of this pretty statue from the window of my suite. A great thing to wake up to each morning.
Wouldn't go out if my way to see it, but neat to see something that old. Dates from 1500BC Egypt
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.
