It is a museum and a landmark located in Rome. It was initially commissioned by the Roman Emperor Hadrian as a mausoleum in 123 AD. The Castel was once the tallest building in Rome. The structure was also used as a prison, a castle and a residence for the popes in times of danger. A covered fortified corridoror was constructed for these purposes, which connected the castle to the Vatican city. The Museum's exhibits feature Renaissance art, ceramics, antique weapons, etc. A huge spiral ramp ascends upwards.
Address: Lungotevere Castello, Rome

Walked next to the Castel so can't comment on its interior, but the outside looks amazing - very imposing/dominating as a castle, and the statues on the nearby bridge add to the appeal. read full review
