  • Mount Soratte so much you can say. Its strategic location made it over thousands of years different uses according to the age, history. Former residence of populations to Etruscan (probably earlier). It was the residence of Pope Sylvester, talks about Virgil in the Aeneid, large military tunnels were excavated during the Fascist period, then passed to the Nazis that settled the General command of the army in the South of Italy commanded by gen. Kesserling, and during the years of the cold war a fallout bunker (open to visitors). The special shape of the sedimentary rock Karst nature allowed him to see over the years numerous caves (not visitable) of extraordinary beauty. Unfortunately everything remained in the eyes of speleologists, potential never exploited. The path (route) leading into the Summit presents no difficulty talking dangers. Difference of about 300 meters, you will encounter small chapels, you pass in a forest rich yet very important fauna endemic vegetation. To get an idea of the wildlife Council views the naturalistic Museum of Sant'Oreste site at the palazzo del Vignola. We arrive at the monastery of our Lady of grace (Convent once inhabited by the Friars) admission upon request of the parish priest) and arrive at the top of the Hermitage of San Silvestro, which houses a crypt full of frescoes. From there I know well marked trails wind through. Not just a mountain,,,, the monte Soratte.

  • After about 5 years I'm back at the bunker to monte Soratte and I must say the place itself, with all the history that has gone to so few kilometers from Rome fascinates me always very ... It is definitely a place to visit because it represents three key historical moments of our nation and we must never, never forget! A huge round of applause to all the Association in recent years has done to make it even more special the tour, gathering resources and materials protagonists of those years!! Congratulations!

  • Recently visited the bunker Soratte impenetrable that formed the basis for German troops during World War II. A tunnel of about 4 km dug by workmen in the area under the guidance of Italian engineers. The rubble and explanations of volunteers make us breathe and re-live those difficult moments in history.
