This is the elephant which was carved by Bernini which is in the Piazza della Minerva. There is an obelisk on top of this elephant and a cool church next to it as well. This is right near the back of the Pantheon.

This elephant, toppled by an obelisk, is a fine Bernini's marble work. It is just outside the Santa Maria Sopra Minerva church, behind the Pantheon. It was ordered by one of the popes, Alexander VII, who was very fond of Bernini.
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
