Castle Sant'Angelo
   
Rome



 The Castle Sant' Angelo dates from the 12th century but owes its drigin to a much older legend. During a solemn procession made in 590 by St.Gregory the Great to implore the Virgin to stop the plague that ravaged the city, an angel appeared in the sky and alighted on the top of the Mausoleum, sheathing his sword as a sign that the prayer was granted. Built as a mausoleum in the region of Hardrian(died AD 138), it was turned into a citadel between 1544-5. Photo by Yongchan Seol(#1/1993), Moonsoo Kwak(#2/1993).
