The tour of the obelisks of Rome
Rome hosts the largest number of obelisks compared to other cities. Originally the obelisks were erected by the Egyptians in honor of the god Ra.
After the decline of the civilization of the pharaohs, the Romans moved the obelisks in Rome. The main streets in Rome are decorated by obelisks, mute witnesses of human history.
