Trajan's Column

Highly recommended
Trajan's Column is an unparalleled masterpiece. Standing 38m tall, it incorporates bulging in its construction to avoid the illusion of concavity generated by its sheer height. Animated by the spiral course they follow, the hundred scenes of images depict Trajan's wars against the Dacians (a people living in what is today Romania); a sublime tableau of fine and precise marble sculpture.
