What people are saying:

Located on the Tiber River, the Castle of the Angels is the mausoleum of the Roman Emperor Hadrian for himself but it has changed from a fortress to a prison to a museum.The magnificent building overlooking St Peter's Cathedral and the Roman landscape is worth a visit!

Additional Information

Introduction

Castel Sant'Angelo was originally a family cemetery built by Emperor Hadrian. Later in the sixth century it was rebuilt as a papal castle. It's said that in 590 AD, Pope Gregory saw an angel in the castle skies, then renamed it as Castel Sant'Angelo. Ponte Sant'Angelo is on the river Tiber, at the western side of old Rome. There are several bridges that connect to the Tiber's west bank, one relatively famous one is the Ponte Sant'Angelo that goes to Castel Sant'Angelo. Ponte Sant'Angelo had two statuettes personally sculpted by Bernini, which have been moved inside the church for preservation.
