Favorite thing: <b>Castel Sant'Angelo</b> Construction began in 139 AD. Originally, It was the mausoleum for Emperor Hadrian. Since then, it has had many roles: as part of Emperor Aurelian's city wall, as a medieval citadel and prison,and as the residence of the Popes in times of political unrest. It houses a museum that covers all aspects of its history.
