Originally built in the second century AD by the Roman emperor Hadrian as his mausoleum, in the 14th century, it was decided that the building should be turned into a castle and a special corridor was added in order to connect the castle with St. Peter’s Basilica. Today, the castle serves as a museum (there are many various pieces of art on display there - e.g. statues, paintings or ceramics - mainly from the Renaissance period). The building itself is built in Ancient Roman style but the statues decorating it are baroque. The castle is divided into five levels but the most important one is the upper terrace (level five) which offers breathtaking views of Rome. Other levels house the mausoleum or the prison. You may recall the castle from the film Angels & Demons where it features as one of the key locations.
