The Roman People's Square, built in the 17th century, is the convergence point of three radial trunk roads. It is oval. In the center, there is an obelisk from Egypt, 23.2 meters high. It is the landmark building of the square. The north side of the square is the People's City Gate, the south side has two symmetrical churches built at the same time, the right side is the Notre Dame of Miracles, the left side is the Notre Dame of Mount Notre Dame, the square also has fountains and lion sculptures. Square gives people a sense of freedom and openness of space. On the day we went to the square, the obelisk was enclosed in a square pillar shape by an art mask, which read a famous saying of Patrick Milan, a contemporary French multimedia artist: if beauty is subjective, ugliness is objective. It may be the decoration of art exhibition advertising activities, or the covering decoration of repairing the obelisk.
The People's Square of Rome is a huge oval square. Its landmark building is an ancient Obelisk from Egypt. In 1589, Pope Hixtas V placed the Egyptian Obelisk in the center of the square, 23.2 meters high. The obelisk was erected in ancient Rome as a memorial to the conquest of Egypt. At the southern end of the People's Square, there are two symmetrical and unique churches: the Notre Dame of Miracles on the right and the Notre Dame of Mount Notre Dame on the left. These two churches were built by Pope Alexander VII in 1658.
If you go in the evening, you won't go shopping after a good meal. It's all closed.
Destination is Spain Square, but on the way through a very large and beautiful square. Looking at the map, this is the Popolo Square. The Obelisk in the middle of the square was transported back from Egypt by Augustus. Paris has only one Obelisk on Concorde Square, and I can't remember how many obelisks I saw in Rome. So I was curious about how many obelisks there were in Rome. I only saw 18 existing obelisks in Italy, the country with the largest number of obelisks, surpassing Egypt, where the obelisks were produced. Thus it can be seen that the Roman Empire was strong at that time.
Take pictures, go to Rome, take pictures of all kinds of cars.
The People's Square is actually a large junction of three roads and the site of the old Roman city gate, Flaminia Gate, which is already a relatively open area in Rome. There are three churches around the People's Square. They are the Notre Dame Church with strong artistic atmosphere, the symmetrical St. Maria Church of Montessanto (Saint Hill) and the Miracle St. Maria Church. Among them, the Notre Dame Church in the northeast corner of the Square is the most famous. St. Mary's Church, which stands today in the People's Square of Rome, was ordered by the Pope to celebrate the victory of the First Crusade. The church was favored and rebuilt by many artists during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. In 1513, Rafael was commissioned by banker Agostino Chigi to build the Chigi Chapel in the church. In the 17th century, Pope Alexander II of the Chigi family ordered Benini to redecorate the church. So the facade of the church now comes from Bernini's hand, and its dome is decorated by Rafael's Genesis Chart.

Originally the People's Square was not within the scope of our itinerary, but when we left the Spanish Square, it was still early, and the People's Square was very close to the Spanish Square, so we went to see it on foot. Italy has many squares, especially Rome. Every square is almost the same. Basically, there is a sculpture or fountain in the middle. Then there is a circle around it. Some street performers perform or draw, and then there are tourists in a hurry. But each square's sculpture is very unique, so that people who do not appreciate it are willing to stop for a while, linger for a while. Lying in such a graceful posture is also drunk. Is there any wood? It feels like wearing a pair of one-piece autumn clothes and trousers. It's a little hot...
