Sallustiao Obelisk, Spanish Steps by 


The famous obelisk located in front of the Catholic church Trinita dei Monti situated at the top of the Spanish Steps, Piazza di Spagna in Rome. Although many obelisks found in Rome are originals from Egypt, this small obelisk is known to be a Roman copy due to the fact that some of the hieroglyphics carved on its side are incorrect.

Digitally manipulated photograph using Photoshop CS5 and Perfect Effects 4 created from original images photographed in Rome, Italy 2011.
