  • There is no doubt that this Obelisk has got a great location, at the same time adorn the whole towards the environment, the stairs and the Church. This Obelisk there is a favourite subject for both the photographer and the memory.

  • It is one of the 13 Egyptian obelisks that are in Rome and which has a curious history, since it was carved in Aswan (Egypt) in the s III by order of the Roman Emperor Aurelian, but it was shipped without any inscription, which were carved over delay in Rome copying the hieroglyphs of Seti I and Ramsés II of the Flaminio Obelisk located in the Piazza del Popolo, but the Roman stonemason was wrong and copied some upside down. Presides over the steps of Piazza de Spagna, in front of the Church of the Trinita di Monti.

  • Located directly at the top of the Spanish steps in front of the Church and easily missed. For the Romans a popular meeting place.

  • Interesting to look at. The obelisk is covered in what seems to be Egyptian hieroglyphs.
  • Worth waking up the Spanish steps to check out.
  • Nice place in Rome
  • The Trinità dei Monti Obelisk or Sallustiano Obelisk is one of eight Ancient Egyptian Obelisks located in Rome. Don't forget to marvel and look at it at the top of the Spanish Steps and in front of the church.
  • Bitching obelisk
