  • First visit to this natural wonder, handled well, finally, by Government and by the people who work there. Enter in the middle of a split mountain is not customary and find a mold of the human hand, the legend explains how drawn from the rock is very charming. The tiny Chapel then constructed on a Boulder fell from the top and conficcatosi in the midst of this fissure, and then suspended at 30 meters from the sea makes it more magical. From above at the tiny Chapel then you can enjoy safely by a breathtaking species on a sunny day. Various flavor including the resting place of St Philip Neri in the middle of the mountains and ancient chandeliers inside the chapel. There is also the Turk Scratch where a stairway leads down to the sea, which for now is limited to 60 steps but still allowing the vision of this cave in which they used to hide the guerrilla ships. In short visit.

  • In memory of those who fought and gave their lives for their country: the Kingdom of the two Sicilies and Francis II that history, written by the victors, contributed to denigrate! This memory is intended to be a contribution to the truth, and not simply a moment of nostalgia!

  • A place of which I didn't know existed, suspended between the sacred (the mountain that broke after the death of Jesus Christ, the sanctuary) and history (the Turk's Cave, the imprint of the hand in the wall of the mountain, the permanence of San Filippo Neri). By the way there is an impressive view of the sea. Worth it spend some time

  • exelant and beautifully
  • A very impressive place, surrounded with peace. A spiritual path that deserves a respectful silence. You walk down a short flight of steps between two ridges of rock to reach a panoramic terrace overlooking the sea.

  • A place of history and religion that particular sensations. To visit possibly not at the weekend. The cave can be visited only the shrine adjacent to the Turkish side 😢😢😢 if by sea canoe 😊😊😊😊

  • Very nice place located on the Monte Orlando Park is a promontory high 171 m above sea level in the province of Latina site where stands the town of Gaeta, and is a natural extension to the Tyrrhenian Sea of Monti Aurunci. Mount, excluding the South side is uninhabited but is covered by forests, trails allow for hiking and make bike riding between the Green and the Majesty of the panoramas. I recommend you complete the tour with a visit to Itri and the nearby sanctuary of the Madonna della Civita.

  • Very beautiful and charming, you walk right into the mountain split. Is the print on the rock of the hand of a Turkish miscreant. You can't go in without visiting it!
