The Mausoleum of Hadrian, usually known as the Castel Sant'Angelo (English: Castle of the Holy Angel), is a towering cylindrical building in Parco Adriano, Rome, Italy. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The tomb of the Roman emperor Hadrian, also called Hadrian's mole, was erected on the right bank of the Tiber, between 135 AD and 139 AD. The building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle, and is now a museum. - Wikipedia

The Real Thing - Today

O Castelo de Santo Ângelo (em língua italiana, "Castel Sant' Angelo"), também conhecido como Mausoléu de Adriano, localiza-se à margem direita do rio Tibre, diante da ponte Sant'Angelo, a pouca distância do Vaticano, em Roma, na Itália. A sua primitiva estrutura foi iniciada em 139 pelo imperador Adriano como um mausoléu pessoal e familiar (Tumbas de Adriano), vindo a ser concluído por Antonino Pio em 139. O castelo é hoje um museu.
