Palazzo di Giustizia and Castel Sant Angelo

Palazzo di Giustizia, or the Hall of Justice is enormous. A foreboding looking building, it has some of the most beautiful statues around. It was impossible to take a picture of the entire building and do it justice, so just take my word for it that it's grand, and then go see it for yourself.

This picture shows just a part of the front of this building, it actually stretches out way past what can be shown in the picture.

Castel Sant Angelo began as a mausoleum built by Emperor Hadrian. It was later converted into a fortress to keep Romans safe and invaders out.

In the 14th century, it was converted once again this time into a church and was connected to St. Peter's Basilica  Posted by Picasa
