Full description
Travel back to 125AD and explore the imposing Castel Sant'Angelo and Ponte Sant’Angelo in the Parco Adriano of Rome.

Initially commissioned by Emperor Hadrian, the building was later used by the popes as a fortress. It was erected on the right bank of the River Tiber, then the popes converted the structure into a castle in the 14th century, with a fortified corridor called the “Passetto di Borgo” to connect the castle to St Peter's Basilica. The Papal state also used Sant'Angelo as a prison; Giordano Bruno, for example, was imprisoned there for six years. Another prisoner was the sculptor and goldsmith Benvenuto Cellini. Executions were performed in the small inner courtyard.

Legend holds that the Archangel Michael appeared atop the mausoleum, sheathing his sword as a sign of the end of the plague of 590, thus lending the castle its present name
