These forums were part of the center of Ancient Rome and date from 46 BC to about 113 AD.
Little remains of most of these. The last of these was Trajans Forum, which was inaugurated in 112. The column a year later. Trajans Coumn is the most outstanding remnant. It stands 98 feet high, 125 if you add the pedestal. It is wrapped with freizes commemorating Trajans campaigns against the Dacians.

In 1587, Pope Sixtus V placed a statue of St. Peter on top.
