About Ponte Sant'Angelo

The Ponte Sant'Angelo was constructed by the architect Demetriano on the command of the Emperor Hadrian. It was built by the Emperor to reach mausoleum which was located across the Tiber River. This bridge is now known as the Castel Sant'Angelo. During and after the 16th century, the prisoners executed were shown on display along the birdge, which till date exists as a gruesome fact. Over the time, this place has been evolved as a adorable pedestrian bridge, decorated with angels and beautiful arches. Moreover, Ponte offers breath-taking views of the Castle.

    The surface of the bridge is paved with marble and has three arches. The bridge is currently only for pedestrians. In the past, pilgrims crossed the bridge to St. Peter's Hall, so it was also known as the pons Sancti Petri. Every angel is different, unfortunately, there is no explanation, should be an angel a story, listen to more understanding.

    In front of St. Angel's Castle is the famous St. Angel Bridge in Rome. The scenery at night is very good. The sculptures on the bridge are related to the crucifixion of Jesus. It can be said that Rome is a very special place, we must go to see it.

    Saint Angel Bridge is one of many bridges on the TEVERE River. It connects Saint Angel's Castle across the river. It's a walking bridge and the most beautiful bridge on the river. There are 12 different angels designed by the famous Italian sculptor Bernini on the bridge. Two of them are sculpted by him personally, but now there are only two imitations. The authentic ones have been collected in museums.

    Saint Angel Bridge is the most beautiful bridge in Rome. There are twelve statues of angels on the bridge. Ten of them are angels. Each Angel holds the same torture tool of Jesus. These twelve angels came from Bernini and his studio. ?

    Every season has different beauty of the Saint Angel Bridge. The angels on the bridge have different postures. Every angel has a legend. Walking on the bridge, listening to the explanations and slowly enjoying the past, there is nothing but praise. There are a lot of black people on the bridge on the ground. We need to pay more attention to them. If we patronize and take pictures, it will be a big trouble to kick.

    In fact, there are several bridges leading to the old city, the most famous of which is the Saint Angel Bridge designed by the famous Italian sculptor Bernini, known as "the most beautiful bridge on the Tiber River". Because there were too many visitors during the day, we came to St. Angel's Bridge at the beginning of the lantern, in pursuit of the princess's footsteps. There is no place beside the bridge where the couple left their affection. It's supposed to be a scene built in the movie. But it doesn't matter. We can walk slowly across the St. Angel Bridge and watch the shape of the bridge and 12 angel statues.

    After breakfast, we take the subway and then transfer to the bus to visit St. Angel's Castle on the Tiber River. The Saint Angel Bridge across the Tiber River to the castle is also the work of Benigni, the great sculptor and architect of the seventeenth century, known as the most beautiful bridge in Rome. Twelve statues of angels lined up on the bridge to welcome us. Each Angel held a torture tool for Jesus. Unfortunately, we could not tell their names.

    Saint Angel Bridge, as you can see from its name, is with Saint Angel Castle, right at the entrance. There are street performers and souvenir vendors on the bridge. There are some leisurely ducks swimming in the river. It is very beautiful to see the whole bridge from a distance.

    After visiting St. Angel's Castle, we came to St. Angel's Bridge, which is situated on the Tiber River. In the morning and evening, we came here to take beautiful pictures. The light is soft and the poetry is dull. At night, we saw the night scenery here, which is very charming.
