TERRACINA OLD TOWN
Halfway between Rome and Naples, in the province of Latina, where history looks out onto the sea, lays one of the historical-artistic pearls of Lazio. Close to other beautiful locations such as Circeo, Sperlonga, Sabaudia and the Pontine Islands, Terracina is located in the South Pontinian area of the region.
Its historic centre, the beating heart of the town, is a magical place where Roman, Medieval, and Modern History still treasure their many testimonies. Among others, there is the ancient Via Appia, which crosses the Forum Square with its original cobbles, the Roman Theatre, the Capitolium, San Cesareo’s Cathedral, built on the ruins of a Roman temple, the Frangipane Castle, Palazzo Braschi, and so much more. Even today, these fascinating monuments enclosed in the old town centre show all the beauty they once held.
Strolling through the Corso, in the picturesque squares and the narrow alleys, you feel entranced by these wonders and the countless tales they can narrate. The overwhelming combination of legends, anecdotes and historical facts carries you away in a sensorial journey through the interesting events of the town.
Once you have plunged yourself into the past history of this world of strong and infinite emotions, coming afloat to the present days is just as easy. All it takes is to peer at the reflection of the sun onto the stunning sea lapping the shores of the lower part of this magnificent town, and take in its charming marine scent.
At the foothill of Jupiter’s Temple, the Old Town of Terracina is a garden of beauties. It hosts restaurants, vibrant cafés, art galleries, museums and a variety of shops in a pleasant miscellany of ancient and contemporary, a fusion of excellent local cuisine, culture and emotions.
