Angels from Vatican – Ponte Sainte Angelo


Bridge Saint’ Angelo, is a Roman bridge in Vatican – Rome, Italy, completed in 134 AD by Roman Emperor Hadrian.

In times past, pilgrims used this bridge to reach St. Peter’s Basilica.
In the seventh century, under Pope Gregory I, both the castle and the bridge
took on the name Saint Angelo, explained by a legend that an angel
appeared on the roof of the castle to announce the end of the plague.
