Monolitos y Columnas Romanas
Read more Read less

In Seville's Calle Mármoles, in the San Bartolomé district, there are 3 Egyptian granitecolumns standing almost 9 m high, on pedestals of local marble, rising some 4.5 m above street level. The columns date from the time of the Emperor Hadrian and were possibly part of a Roman temple.

Only three columns now remain: two others were moved to the Alameda de Hércules and another was broken when it was moved. They were removed from this location in 1574 and erected in the Alameda avenue, designed by Count Barajas. Two sculptures were placed on the columns, one of Hercules and one of Julius Caesar, the founder and patron of the city, respectively.
