The celebrated Ponte Sant'Angelo, the ancient Pons Aelius or Pons Adrianus crossing the Tiber, was built by Hadrian in 134 AD as a fitting approach to his mausoleum.
Ten statues of angels, by pupils of Bernini (1688 to his design) stand along the balustrade of the bridge. The central three arches that support the bridge or of the original structure, while the end arches were restored and enlarged in 1892-94 during the construction of the Lungotevere embankments.
