Imagined by Emperor Hadrian himself, the cylindrical monument housed the tomb of Hadrian and his family, but also later emperors until Caracalla in 217.
He also built the bridge coming directly into the monument from the center of Rome, flanked by amazing statues of angels. The mausoleum was later transformed into a military fortress and much of the contents and decorations inside the tombs have been lost during the works.
