Terracina is one of the main tourist centres in Lazio due to its seaside location and cultural heritage.
A visual summary of its history can be seen in the current Piazza del Municipio where there are parts of the Roman Appian Way, the Forum Aemilianum, traces of the Roman Theatre and the Capitolium.
The medieval period can be seen in the Cathedral of San Cesareo, Palazzo Venditti, Torre dei Rosa and Frangipane Castle. Within the ancient town are the Churches of Purgatorio and San Giovanni, with Palazzo Braschi and Palazzo Bonifica nearby, and the modern part, with the Town Hall.
From Piazza del Municipio there is also a view of the two symbols of Terracina: the sea and the Temple of Jupiter Anxur. The latter is part of a monumental complex that made up the Acropolis, located on Monte Sant’Angelo from which you can admire a stunning view of the gulf and the Pontine Islands up to, on especially clear days, the islands of Ischia and Capri.
