Sant Angelo Castle

As one of Rome’s most famous landmarks, Sant Angelo Castle, or Castle of the Holy Angel, has experienced a colourful and turbulent history. Originally constructed as a mausoleum for the Emperor Hadrian and his successors, Sant Angelo Castle was incorporated into construction of the city’s defences during construction of the Aurelian Wall and later became a fortress. The papacy acquired the building in 1277, turning it into a refuge during dangerous times. According to legend, the Archangel Michael appeared on top of the fortress in the year 590 to end a severe plague that had afflicted the city.

  • Visit the luxurious papal apartments, decorated with many frescoes, then descend on the 400-foot spiralling corridor leading to the Sant Angelo Castle’s lower floors that included prison cells and a torture chamber.
  • Relax on the castle terrace and gaze upward at the bronze statue of the Archangel Michael by Flemish sculptor Pieter Verschaffelt that commemorates the angel’s legendary appearance in Rome in 590.
  • Trace the history of this famous building in Rome in the National Museum of Sant Angelo Castle featuring exhibits ranging from Renaissance paintings to antique military weapons.

Occupying a prominent position on the banks of the Tiber River, Sant Angelo Castle is within walking distance of the Vatican. Visitors can access the Castle easily from many sections of Rome. Express bus line 40 takes travellers from the main railway station to the castle. Those who prefer taking rapid transit can board Metro Line A at the city’s Termini Train Station and alight at Lepantro. Sant Angelo Castle is several minutes away on foot. The Termini Train Station connects the city with many major cities throughout Europe via high-speed rail service.
