Castel Sant'Angelo in Rome, Italy, and the Ponte Sant'Angelo bridge over the Tiber river.

"The rather forbidding round form of Castel Sant’Angelo dominates many views of the River Tiber. Conceived by Hadrian (AD117-138) as his mausoleum, it has been remodelled over the years and has served as a mausoleum for a number of other emperors and their families, a papal refuge, prison, garrison for Napoleonic troops, and now as a museum. The castle is constructed on four main floors with the beautiful papal apartments on the upper two storeys. It is crowned by a huge bronze statue of the Archangel Michael, which has given the castle its name." (P. Harcourt Davies, Fiona Nichols: Rome and the Vatican, 2006).
