Angels and Demons – Rome – 7

Bernini’s sculptures feature again at Castel Sant’Angelo, where Robert Langdon finally confronts the assassin. The Sant’Angelo bridge which crosses the Tiber in front of the castle is lined with 10 sculpted angels. These were erected in 1668 by order of Pope Clement IX.
