  • In the upper part of the village of Palestrina stands the Temple of Fortuna Primigenia, moulded in the Palazzo Barberini. Inside, several interesting archaeological finds, including the Nile mosaic. Nice view and attach photos.

  • Although it may seem trivial to walk in this place takes you back in time. Very nice feeling you get when looking at the scenery from what should have been a great temple.

  • I have studied this amazing sanctuary for the liturgy of Temple of Fortuna dot com, and studied it as part of the curriculum of Roman Architecture Course at Yale, given by Diana Klein through Coursera, and now it is appearing on Google Earth! This is the next best thing to actually being there ... hopefully someone who actually has been there will post a review soon. Five stars for an amazing Goddess and an amazing piece of ancient architecture :D
  • The sanctuary of fortuna Primigenia is located in the upper part of the town of Palestrina, near Rome. The shrine dates back to the 2nd century BC, inside, you can admire numerous artifacts found in several tombs in the village you can also visit the various terraces which included the ancient Sanctuary. A beautiful view from the frusinate up to the city of Rome, with the opportunity to admire the coast of Lazio on days with little haze.

  • The sanctuary was renovated in monumental forms at the end of the 2nd century. BC, is divided into a series of artificial terraces built on the slope of Mount Ginestro pass, connected by ramps and stairs that allow the faithful's Ascension to the top, where the round Temple of the goddess of fortune. The complex was inspired by magnificent terraced architecture of Eastern Aegean Hellenistic sanctuaries, which tended to enhance the appearance and the inclusion of the building into the landscape, and is a major example of architecture Hellenistic period in Italy.

  • Well worth a visit the Museum cared very well unfortunately little visited because off the classical paths but who will not be regretted the staff very friendly and welcoming

  • A majestic Temple, for placement and size, that overlooks the city with imperious Majesty. The three terraces ascending ramps (once covered), the majestic hemicycles, arches ... a unique show! Too bad it's kept "Italian style", which is left mostly to himself, despite the entrance fee (cumulative with the Museum). Also only allow access not only from the upper terrace (so-called "curtain"), but also from the lower (as did the ancient Romans who were going up to the Temple), which has been equipped for this (and now serves as a dormitory for stray animals), would better appreciate (and maybe keep it cleaner) this wonderful place. The grass is cut, but luckily the dirt, especially in lower platforms, reigns supreme. A little extra effort wouldn't be as unthinkable.
