Guide to Saint Angel’s Castle in Rome. Conceived exclusively in digital format, will accompany you during your visit in the monument, with detailed texts, both scientifically interesting and easy to follow.
The guide to Saint Angel’s Castle in Rome presents you the history of Saint Angel’s Castle that substantially coincides with the history of Rome: the changes, the revolts, the misery and glory of the Eternal City seem to punctually involve this large complex, its contour mirrored by the waters of the Tiber for the past two thousand years.
The complex was built in 123 A.C. as a sepulchre for the Emperor Hadrian; when all the ancient Roman monuments were destroyed, reduced to ruins or used as quarries, Saint Angel’s Castle, through an uninterrupted series of developments and transformations, survived and accompanied Rome’s history and fortunes over the centuries.
From funerary monument to fortified stronghold, from dark and terrible prison to splendid Renaissance residence, from prison during the Risorgimento to museum, Saint Angel’s Castle embodies – with its solemn Roman spaces, its strong walls, its luxurious frescoed halls – the main historical events of the Eternal City, where the past and the present appear to be inextricably linked.
