TEMPLE OF JUPITER ANXUR:
The Temple of Jupiter Anxur or Sanctuary of Monte Sant'Angelo, inspired by the great Hellenistic architecture, belongs to the series of ancient Lazio sanctuaries restructured in the late Republic of Ancient Rome, between the end of the second century. B.C. and the beginning of the first century B.C. The unmissable view that can be appreciated from the Temple dominates the city of Terracina, the Pontine land, the Circeo, the sea with the Pontine islands and Ischia.
All the archipelago, and in particular the island of Ponza, represents a spectacular natural park where we find many species of Mediterranean flora and fauna. On the whole island there is a magical atmosphere, from the caves to the botanical gardens, to the underground labyrinth of tunnels built by the Romans. A truly spectacular experience.
Sabaudia was founded on August 5, 1933 as part of the extensive land reclamation operation of the Pontine swamp, which saw the birth of four other cities: Littoria (now Latina) the capital city, Aprilia, Pomezia, and Pontinia. Sabaudia obtains the Blue Flag in 2017, the international recognition for the certification of the environmental quality of the coastal resorts, for the fourteenth consecutive time from 2003 to today.
The abbey raises in a small and characteristic medieval village between Priverno and Terracina with an adjoining convent of monks. Built in the Cistercian Gothic style, its construction dates back to around 1100. Internally, the abbey is almost entirely free of frescoes, there are just a couple partially visible near the main altar according to the use of time. St. Thomas D’Aquino spent here the last days of his life.
