The TrinitÓ dei Monti church and an ancient Roman obelisk at the top of the Spanish steps.
The church of the Santissima TrinitÓ dei Monti (often called merely the TrinitÓ dei Monti) is a late Renaissance titular church in Rome, central Italy.
In front of the church stands the Obelisco Sallustiano, one of the many obelisks in Rome, moved here in 1789. It is a Roman obelisk in imitation of Egyptian ones, originally constructed in the early years of the Roman Empire for the Gardens of Sallust near the Porta Salaria. The hieroglyphic inscription was copied from that on the obelisk in the Piazza del Popolo.

o ponto da onde a foto foi tirada apenas reforša a grandeza dos monumentos, somados a esse azul tŃo forte, e os trašos dourados da igreja. PERFEITO

A church with splendid architecture and a very nice angle to make the photo.
