Castel Sant' Angelo in Rome Part 2

Initially Castel Sant' Angelo was built  by Emperor Hadrian as his tomb. Later it was occupied by Pope Nicholas who built a famous passaggeway called passetto , so that the Pope could walk safely to Castel Sant' Angelo from the Vatican. It was also used as a prison at the time. This photo was taken inside the Castel. I like the contrast of two lights.
