The Obelisk was placed opposite the Pantheon in 1711 and Pope Clement XI commissioned to build decorative dolphins and coats of arms. There is a plaque in the building in front of the Pantheon describing the Papal authorities salvaron plaza from the hands of the owners of Inns and brothels. The plaque in the building that houses the Hotel del Sole, one of the most famous hotels in Rome, says that the poet Torquato Tasso used to live there. Piazza della Rotonda is a perfect place to sit and have a coffee.
