K - King of the Castle

 Although it is one if the main landmarks in Rome it is often overlooked as Rome has so many other amazing sites to see. It is called 'Castello San'Angelo' which literally translates as 'Saint Angel Castle'. Rumour has it  that an angel landed on the roof of the castle and ended a plague in Rome so the Castle was named after it. During the Castle's long and coloured history it was also used as a safe place for the Pope so to this day there is a passage from the Vatican to the Castle.
