Originally built in the second century AD by the Roman emperor Hadrian as his mausoleum, in the 14th century, it was decided that the building should be turned into a castle and a special corridor was added in order to connect the castle with St. Peter’s Basilica. Today, the castle serves as a museum (there are many various pieces of art on display there - e.g. statues, paintings or ceramics - mainly from the Renaissance period). The building itself is built in Ancient Roman style but the statues decorating it are baroque. The castle has five levels with on the top level a terrace that offers views of Rome.
