Piazza Montagna




From the magnificent Temple of Castor and Pollux, rebuilt about 89 BC, are two Corinthian columns, ten meters high. This structure, along with the beautiful surrounding

ruins, give an idea of the original grandeur of the monument as a whole.


Walking in the archaeological area, after crossing Via delle Colonne, is joined Piazza Montagna with its typical Roman cobblestone pavement.


From here one can enjoy a

breathtaking view across the plains and push the eye down to the sea that provides, on the background, a unique and incomparable setting.
