Castel Sant'Angelo

Rome, Italy
4 / 9
The construction began to be built back in the era of the Roman Empire in the II century A.D. During its existence, it served as the papal home, prison, warehouse and even the tomb. Today, the fortress houses the Military History Museum. The castle received its name in the VI century A.D. after Pope Gregory appeared the image of the Archangel Michael. Directly from the castle over the Tiber River is a picturesque bridge that was built under the emperor Hadrian. On the bridge it was possible to get to the Field of Mars by the shortest route.

A fine visit. The best thing about this castle is the view you get once you're on the top floor.
