  • The esquilino obelist, located behind the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, adorned the entrance of the mausoleum of Augustus teaming up with what is now at the Quirinale. It is a Roman imitation of the Egyptian ones, it has no hieroglyphics but it is a smooth monolith. Rome's obelisks are not among the best.

  • This Obelisco, appears less "beautiful" than others in the city, having no hieroglyphics on its surface. In any case, it is located in this beautiful square, which is the backdrop to the Basilica of Sana Maria Maggiore.

  • Rome preserves 13 obelisks of Egyptian or Roman antiquity. The Esquilino obelisk, situated in Piazza dell'Esquilino, is a beautiful example of the Roman obelisks, with a privileged location behind the magnificent basilica of Santa Maria Magiore.

  • Not quite as ornate as other Obelisco throughout the city. But a good view with the building behind it.
  • So cool in morning Sun !
  • In opposite of the obelisk you find the basilica clemens x
  • Love old stuff
  • Classical Roman architecture.
