Castel Sant' Angelo

Symbol of imperial dominance and later a papal fortress, Castel Sant’Angelo was originally built by Emperor Hadrian as a tomb for himself and his family. During the centuries, it became a defensive bastion, fortress, a papal residence and inspired Giacomo Puccini for the opening of the final act of his opera Tosca.
