Gallery Castel Sant Angelo


The Castel Sant'Angelo is nestled between the Tiber and the Vatican.
It was built in A.D. 135 as Emperor Hadrian's mausoleum.
It was used later also as a fortress and prison, even providing an escape route for popes via the connected corridor running atop the wall encircling the Vatican.
It serves up fabulous views of the city.
