Rome in Black and White Photographs

Castel Sant'Angelo, Rome Rome’s major fortress, built by Emperor Hadrian as his mausoleum, but used by Popes as a stronghold in times of danger (it defended the northern entrance to the city, and held huge reserves of food, complete with granaries, a mill, vast water tanks, and even wineskins in the walls!). A covered, fortified secret corridor called the ‘Passetto di Borgo’ links the castle with the apostolic palace (it looks only like a wall from the outside).
