Ponte Sant’Angelo

Bridge

One of the amazing place in Rome what Iam recomended to watch, its Ponte Sant’Angelo.
That bridge was builded by Roman Emperior Hadrian in 134 AD, to span the Tiber, from city center to towering Castel Sant’Angelo.
In 1530 on the bridge began to install Statues of the apostles Peter and Paul. St. Paul hold sword in right hand, and the book in left hand. St. Peter holding book in left hand.  Authors Lorenzetto and Paolo Romano.
