Bridge of the Holy Angel …the Archangel Michael…is adorned with sculptures of angels and leads up to the Castel Sant´ Angelo, on top of which there is a giant Saint Michael statue.

The Archangel appeared at this spot at the end of the 6th century, according to legend.
At the end of the 15th century the pope had to escape through the secret passage that leads from Saint Peter´s Church to the castle, not to be imprisoned by the French invaders.

I am a nature lover and an amateur photographer.
Nature is my main inspiration.Snow and ice, birds and water keep attracting my eye. So do trees amd flowers.
I am also interested in myth and history, especially the history of women, the `herstory´. I love to travel and to visit archeological sites and beautiful landscapes.
I use a compact camera, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28

    So very gorgeous … I wonder why all the angels are facing the bridge and none the water, do you know? Glorious trip it seems you have had dear Helua!

  • I´m happy that you appreciate my Rome pictures, Em!! The trip was a success…we held the energies in St Peter´s square while the Pope was on his peace mission in Israel!! Would be wonderful to see peace break out in that hotspot of our world!
    About the bridge it seems that roads were more important to important people!(?) The river was probably used for transports of goods…there was very low water in the “Tevere” when we were there.
