Oblique low angle view of Castel Sant'Angelo (Mausoleum of Hadrian) Castel Sant'Angelo, Rome, Italy. Built 135-39 on the right bank of the Tiber by Roman Emperor Hadrian (76-138) for use as his family Mausoleum, the Castel Sant'Angelo later became a Papal fortress and is now a museum. A vision of the Archangel Michael at the end of the 590 plague gave the building its name. In the foreground is one of the statues of angels designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) on the Ponte Sant'angelo which links the Castel to the Vatican City.
