The Castel Sant'Angelo was originally constructed by the Roman emperor, Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. Later it was used by the popes as a fortress and a castle. Today it is a very interesting museum. The ashes of many emperors to follow were entombed here but later scattered by tomb raiders. It became a military and that is where much of this historic structure was lost. Then the popes converted the Castel de Angelo into a fortress and castle in the 14th century. It was also converted into a prison. This is not your typical view of the Castel Sant'Angelo, but then I like to take pictures of things that are not so typical. I love the architectural style reminding me of some of the very ancient old streets of Rome.
