The passetto

The Passetto of Borgo is a predestrian passage, 800 metres, connecting the Vatican City, with St. Angel Castle . The Passeto has been built by Pope Niccolò III in 1277 usising part of the Vatican Walls.

The use of the PASSETTO was to allow the Chief of the Roman Church (the Oope) to escape very quickly in case of danger and in the meantime have a bulwark to defend the Borgo District.
Today is possible to visit the Passetto only by a guided visit!
