Bridge

Ponte Sant'Angelo, or Bridge of the Holy Angel, is a landmark that connects the Vaticano district to the Centro district, and extends over the Tiber river in Rome.

HistoryEdit

The bridge was built to cross the river from the city center to Emperor Hadrian's mausoleum, which later became the Castel Sant'Angelo.

In 1450, its balustrades buckled due a surging mob of pilgrims making their way to the St. Peter's Basilica, leading to a mass drowning. Later, in the 16th century, the structure was used to display the bodies of executed men to the public.

TriviaEdit

  • The bridge was a restricted area in Brotherhood, except in certain memories, such as "The Ezio Auditore Affair".
  • The bridge was formerly known as Pons Aelius or Ponte Aelius.
  • Historically, the statues on the bridge were not placet until 1527 by order of Pope Clement VII.
