The area
Address
Neighborhood: Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.

Climb to the top of the Castel and you are rewarded with the sight of the bronze carving of Michael the Warrior Archangel with sword drawn ready.

Perfect addition to the skyline of Rome and yet another reason to visit the Castel Sant'Angelo.

One of the interesting things to see at Castel Sant'Angelo is the statue of St. Michael the archangel. This is a beautiful monument that is easy to spot as it is situated atop the castle and in plain view, even to those who don't go inside for a visit.

This bronze statue was created by Peter Anton von Verschaffelt (1748-1753) and shows the winged St. Michael withdrawing a his sabre as if to warn those with evil intent of the heavenly and holy protection afforded to the castle by his presence. It is a nice statue and enjoyable to see when you visiting Castel Sant'Angelo.

Note: You can also see St. Michael quite well from outside Castel Sant'Angelo. If skies are blue skies and you've a long lens, you'll have no trouble take pictures from some distance as well.

Tip: A neat photo to take is from the opposite bank of the Tiber River, just after crossing Ponte Sant'Angelo. This allows you to capture many of Bernini's statues which adorn the bridge in the picture of Castel Sant'Angelo and the statue of St. Michael the archangel.

This magnificent bronze statue can be seen on the top of Castel Sant'Angelo where it was originally placed in 1752. For a closer look, go to the rooftop of the Castel, where you'll also find the most breathtaking views of Rome and toward the Vatican City.

I climbed to the top of the museum to see and it was worth it. The statue was cool and view better. It is worth the climb for the views.

At the very top of Castel Sant'Angelo, which was the Mausoleum of the Emperor Hadrian before it was converted to a papal fortress, is the magnificent bronze statue of the Archangel Michael, modelled in 1753 by Peter Anton von Verschaffelt. It's a beautiful statue, full of grace and power. The statue crowns the Castel Sant'Angelo; at the very top of this impressive papal fortress and residence, not only can you admire the wonderful statue, but the amazing views of Rome and the Vatican as well. You can easily spend several hours at Castel Sant'Angelo, then relax with the magnificent views of the statue and the city when you finally get to the top.

On the very top of Casel Sant' Angelo there is a bronze statue of St. Michael created by the Flemish sculptor Peter Anton von Verschaffelt, in 1753. It is a very large statue with St. Michael holding a sword.

The statue impresses you with how it was made and how imposing it is. If I were to make a ranking of the three most interesting things to see in Rome these would be - the Vatican Museum, the Colosseum and the Sant'Angelo Castle.

Bronze statue of Michael the Archangel, is located on top of the Castel Sant'Angelo, as the castle is round and statue is on the top of it, resembles to cake decoration is big. You don't get close to it, so you admire from down to up.
The castle is named after statue or the Archangel.

Castle San Angelo has SOOOO much to explore, and when you finally reach the roof terrace and take in the expansive views over Rome, turn around and check out the Statue of St Michael the archangel.

The angel statue is an iconic image of Rome, so to finally be there and see it for myself was amazing. The statue itself is very powerful and beautiful, but the view from the top of Castel Sant'Angelo is incredible. Take your camera and enjoy!
