  • Important because it is original and for the long history, although in Italy there are 12. Originally from the 5th century BC. In the 1st century AD we find him in Campo Marzio in Rome, at the Temple of Isis. When Emperor Theodosius abolished pagan cults in 391, the obeliscus was made to disappear. The little Egyptian wonder did not return to speak of itself again until the 1700s, when humanity rediscovered itself as a lover of ancient civilizations. The small cross at the top of the structure, feeling the folk tradition, would contain a fragment of the True Cross of Christ.

  • Obelisco of Egyptian origin, arrived in Italy intact and arranged in front of the church of San Domenico, practically in front of the entrance of the ducal palace. It is worth watching it and taking a picture.

  • One of the few original Egyptian obelisks present in Italy. Between the Ducal Palzzzo and the Church of San Domenico it is often underestimated and not even seen by tourists. In fact, just a glance and then you can also proceed through the wonders of the Historical Center of Urbino.
