A mausoleum, a fortress, a prison and finally a museum… Rome offers an abundance of monuments and sights rich in history, stories and legends, but Castel Sant’Angelo is one which truly encompasses the essence of the city’s transformation throughout the centuries. It was first built between 123 and 139 AD to serve as the mausoleum of the Roman emperor, Hadrian, and his family. Then, it became a military building, which in 403 would be integrated to the Aurelian Walls. In the 14th century, Castel Sant’Angelo took on the role of a military fortress connected to the Vatican through an elevated passageway which still exists today, “Passetto di Borgo”. It was later used as a prison; a place where executions were carried out and where prisoners were left to starve. In 1901, it became a wonderfully rich museum which harbors relics of its tumultuous past. Today, it graces the Roman skyline with its golden lights, and is visited by many during their stay in Rome.

Translated from Italian, the name “Campo de Fiori” means “field of flowers”, and is considered to have been given to the area back in the Middle Ages, when it was actually a meadow. Since 1869, every morning from Monday through Saturday it houses a market well-known for its flowers and fruit and vegetable. Important historical fact is that in this square Giordano Bruno was burnt for heresy in 1600, and now a monument dedicated to him stands on the exact spot of his martyrdom and death.
