  • The mausoleum of Lucius Munatius Plancus is placed on top of the Monte Orlando, protected area is part of the Parco regionale Riviera di Ulisse, area of high landscape value including the split mountain with its Sanctuary and a great sea cave. It has a cylindrical, with height of about 13 meters and a diameter of about 30. Lucius munatius Plancus, Caesar's Gallic campaigns and was a General in the civil war; during the civil war he crossed the Rubicon with Caesar. He was designated by the latter "Praefectus Urbis (Prefect of the city) which is one of the six judges who were to govern Rome in his absence. Loved Gaeta from owning a beautiful villa in its territory of which there are only ruins and a large mausoleum, place on top of Monte Orlando, very well preserved, in which he was buried when he died in 22 b.c. and within which there is a statue of him. The Mausoleum a Doric frieze depicts weapons, shields, trophies and crowns. On the door there is a dedicatory plaque. The front door opens into a ring-shaped corridor, with the walls covered with reticulated to the beginning of time, in malta. Funeral are four cells, arranged in a cross, with the main overlooking the entrance to the mausoleum. The monument is not accessible by private car and if you want to avoid the uphill walk through the park that although bella is somewhat tiring, you can take advantage of a shuttle bus.

  • We are located on the top of Monte Orlando, in the heart of the urban park. The mausoleum, burial place of Lucius Munatius Plancus important Roman politician died in Gaeta, take a walk in the Woods, not tiring, offering beautiful views of the Gulf of Gaeta, the Pontine Islands and the Circeo. The 13-metre high cylindrical mausoleum, funerary monument, itself is not of particular emotions, nor on the outside, where only the Doric friezes are appreciable with weapons, nor in the internal one quite bare, which houses a statue of him. We recommend a visit to enjoy, in absolute tranquility, the scents and colors of the monte Orlando.
