Main Entrance

 

portone

 

Continuing the Pelasgian Way, at Piazza Montagna, is the cobbled paving that leads to the main entrance of Milita House.

 

Recently restored, the main door is surmounted by a stone arch on which, in 1666, Bentivolus Montagna placed a plaque to commemorate the restoration he wanted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

ingressoInside is a lovely and well proportioned courtyard which overlooks the different entrances that lead to as many parts of the House.

 

The courtyard also has access to a large pit, now empty, whose premises extend to below the adjoining of Piazza Montagna.

 

Alongside one of the entrances, is the basement of an ancient pre-Roman sacrificial altar, found during medieval restoration, in the foundations of the building, along the ancient path leading to the nearby Temple of Castor and Pollux.
