Have a look on the left of the castle Sant'Angelo in front of you. The wall with several arches links the apostolic palace to the castle Sant'Angelo. It is an emergency exit for the pope in case of attack on the apostolic palace. This passage on top of the wall, 50 meters above the ground was built by Leon IV (847-855) and renovated by Alexandre VI in 1227. The apostolic palace is full of these kinds of secrets, but unfortunately this passage remains closed to visitors.

This passage is built to provide the Pope with an escape route from the Vatican to Castel Sant’Angelo during times of siege of the Vatican. Unless you know what you are looking for it looks just like another wall of fortification. A great view can be had from Castel Sant’Angelo, looking towards the Vatican.
