Mausoleum of Hadrian

The Mausoleum, designed by the architect Demetriano, was finished, after the death of Hadrian himself, in 139 under Antonino Pio.

So it was that all the Emperors of the dynasty of the Antonines and then of the Severi up to Caracalla were buried here.

To put in communication the sepulcher with Campo Marzio a new bridge was built, the Elio Bridge ( today's Ponte Sant'Angelo ) which was inaugurated in 134 AD.

The sepulcher rose immediately beyond the bridge: its structure, incorporated into Castel Sant'Angelo wheelchair accessible tours holidays, has largely been preserved.

Castel Sant'Angelo

The building had a square base of 89 meters on each side and a height of 15 meters.

On this, a second cylindrical building about 20 meters high, still above a circular temple, surrounded by columns.

As tall as the building below and on all a bronze quadriga led by a colossal Hadrian ( the head is kept in the Rotonda of the Vatican Museums ).

The Mausoleum soon became an advanced bastion of the Aurelian Walls, a sort of bridgehead across the river Tiber.

Probably by Onorio in 403 AD and since then the Mole Adriana began to be a defense for the Elio Bridge.

It was also a great stronghold for the access to the city from north so much that it will save the Vatican settlement from the Sack of the Visigoths of Alaric.

The statue of the Angel from which the Castle name derives, dates back to 1600, when the Angel appeared to the Pope St Gregory the Great to announce the end of the plague in the city.

The statue has been replaced several times ( six ) by consumption, like the original which was made of wood, by breakage, as happened at the second marble that fell or for other reasons.

The current bronze Angel is the work of Pietro Van Verschaffelt.

Today Castel Sant'Angelo wheelchair accessible tours, is home to a museum with various rooms.

You can admire splendid frescoes by Raphael, by Giulio Romano, by Bramante, by Lorenzo Lotto.

The wooden furniture in the Camera del Tesoro is also splendid.
