Is Sorcery A Common Thing in Rome?

To all, it’s Castel Sant'Angelo, or the Mausoleum of Hadrian, or even the Castle of the Holy Angel, but to most locals, it’s where you’ll find some oddball magic. Yep, this lofty tube-shaped building in Parco Adriano in the city of Rome is where some hocus pocus street magic happens. That and of course, a whole lot of street finds and history novelties.

Fact: This was once the tallest building in all of Rome, and built around 123 AD - 139 AD. From Papal fortress, residence and prison, now it’s officially turned itself into a superlative museum that’s still looks royality – the Museo Nazionale di Castel Sant'Angelo. There are actually a lot of historical discoveries found inside this museum, and it’s one of those museums in Rome that everyone should see at least once. But, in case some magic appeals to you, you should indulge yourself and check-out some street magic.

Who and what the H are these Rome's Mysterious Street Performers?! #theyforreal #sorcery?

Actually they are all over town but mostly in this area, you sure could find one. Meditation can make us really powerful; we all know that. But this? Wow. Lol.

And no, it isn't sorcery. 

They’re called Fakirs, by the way and to know more about them, you can go here. Yep, the highlight here is and will still be the castle, but maybe some magic would interest you too?
