Saint Angelo Castle
Rome - Sant Angelo Castle
Castel Sant'Angelo had been constructed in 139 AD by Emperor Adrianus to be his imperial tomb.
A coridor links it with the Vatican Palace, providing an escape route for the pope. The St. Angelo Castle is now a museum. From dank cells to fine apartments of Renaissance popes, the museum cover all aspects of the castle's history.
