A neoclassical square and one of the most visited plazas in Rome. From the northern side, you enter through the Porta del Popolo which was once called Porta Flaminia and it was a gate of Ancient Rome.
The present-day square was designed by Giuseppe Valadier between 1811 and 1822. In the middle of the square there is an Egyptian obelisk which is one of the oldest and tallest obelisks in Rome.
There are also two twin churches – Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria in Montesanto that were partially designed by a famous Italian Baroque sculptor and architect - Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
