Rome, Italy

Trajan's Column sits at the western end of the Trajan Forum. It was built to commemorate Trajan's victory over the Dacians, who came from what is now modern Romania. It was built in 113 A.D. and stands 97 feet tall. A statue of Trajan himself once stood atop the monument. That statue was replaced by a statue of Peter in 1588.
