Trajan's Column 2

The current statue on top of the column is of Saint Peter.

The column is very well preserved.A frieze covers it from the base up, depicting Trajan's battles with the Dacians.

The column is located at Trajan's Forum, at the Via dei Fori Imperiali.

There is a legend that the column was stopped from being demolished by Pope Gregory the Great when he asked God to save Trajan's soul from hell.
