Swiss Guards are the Swiss soldiers who have served as bodyguards and ceremonial guards since the late 15th century. In Castel Gandolfo, a small Italian town or commune in Lazio about 15 miles south-east of Rome on the Alban Hills, is the best known summer residence of the Pope. Vatican spokesman Fr Federico Lombardi announced that Benedict would possibly retire to Castel Gandolfo after his resignation.
