  • An interesting piece of Egyptian history in Rome. Very close to the metro station, the pyramid sits by a busy road and castle remains, looking very out of place! Worth coming out to see but don't expe...  more »

  • I recommend that you go to the garden by the cemetery behind the pyramid and look closely at the pyramid from here (if you come from the Metro station Pyramid-Yes, then is not the surroundings and the view towards the pyramid so fine). From the Park is the quiet and beautiful, a great place to sit down to admire both the Park and the pyramid. The pyramid is built of brick and cement, covered with white marble (about 27 m high. It was erected as a tomb and Memorial for the Roman Consul Gaius Cestius, who died in the year 12 f.Kr. In 1663, it was made by the excavations on the orders of Pope Alexander VII at the pyramid, it was found two sculptures here dedicated to Cestius, it was also dug an opening in the pyramid and it was discovered a burial chamber-which was empty when it had been visited by grave robbers. Two pyramids was built in Rome, but only this remains. The other was destroyed and the marble was used for St. Peter's Basilica. It is said that the pyramids were built to contain the remains of the family of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, identified as the family of Cestius. A legend says that Mary Magdalene was buried in one of the pyramids. Location: near the Porta San Paolo and by the Catholic Church not the farm.
