  • It is an obelisk almost 14 meters high, made of red granite. It is located in front of the Church Trinità dei Monti and was erected in the late eighteenth century. It is one of the thirteen obelisks of the ancient world (Egyptians and Romans) that we can see in the city.

  • There seems to be an obelisk in nearly every piazza in Rome so it does become a bit humdrum. This one sits in front of the church at the top of the Spanish Steps.  more »
  • The obelisk at the top of the Spanish Steps is one of the thirteen ancient Egyptian obelisks of the Eternal City... Established in its present place at the end of the 18th century, it was previously located in the gardens of Sallustius, located north of Rome... Interesting detail: ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics were painted on it by the Romans, who copied them from an Egyptian prototype made by the Egyptians in the 13th century BC.

  • The place for one perfect sunset !
  • Would like more information about this structure. As with most historical features more readily available data please.
  • More information should be maid available
  • Passed by on a walking tour. So many beautiful and interesting sites to see in Rome. Spanish Steps are beautiful but can be crowded at different times of day. You can walk up the steps but if you go pass the security at top, they will not let you go back down but route you different paths around.
  • The place to meet with guide tour guys!)
