Castel Sant'Angelo, a Roman architectural monument, also known as the Adrian Mausoleum (or Sad Castle) is a tall cylindrical building in Adriano Park on the banks of the Tiber.
Emperor Hadrian began to build it in 135 as a mausoleum for himself and family members. the construction was completed in 139,
Originally built by order of the Roman emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum, as well as a tomb for other emperors, the last of which was buried by Caracalla,
A very interesting ancient castle, maybe even the best in Rome, while you go to it across the bridge,
there are very beautiful sculptures along the way, I advise you to visit this place for sure.
The bridge is also very beautiful, in the morning there are not many people, the Vatican is nearby.
