A Place to Feel Safe

Since the castle was impregnable, Pope Nicholas III Orsini decided to have it connected with the Vatican Palaces through the Passetto di Borgo, an elevated passage linking Castel Sant’ Angelo with the Vatican city. From this moment on, the Castle would remain tied to the history of the Popes, who used it as their fortress and shelter at times of danger. The perimeter walls were added and many additional improvements were commissioned so that the castle could accommodate the papal apartments. Alexander VI Borgia had a new apartment built and commissioned the frescoes to Pinturicchio while Clement VII had a private bathroom decorated with pagan motifs constructed for him.
