Once upon a time the tallest building in Rome, this structure has served a lot of purposes since its construction, the latest being a museum.
Originally commissioned by Emperor Hadrian, was to be used as a mausoleum for his family and himself. Over the years, successive popes have used alternately as a castle and a fortress.
This museum is known by many common names, some of them being Castel Sant'Angelo and the Mausoleum of Hadrian. Following the death of Emperor Hadrian and his family, several other Roman emperors made this place their final resting place.
This building is notable for a number of important statues that adorn the premises. There are a few examples of Baroque architecture that can be seen in the statues of the angels and that depicting the Passion of Christ.
