  • Beautiful statue of Castor at the end of the staircase leading to the Capitol. Impossible not to see it passing in this area. That's really nice.

  • I climb the staircase to the apex, where the large statues guard the square. They are the Dark Gods, the inseparable twins. Goto, the mortal hero of Greek mythology, is on the left side of the cordon. It is said that Leda, their mother, conceived them separately, joining on the same night first with Zeus and then with her husband, the Spartan king Tindaro. From the union with the god would have been born Polluce, endowed with immortal nature, from that with Tindaro the mortal Castor. The two boys grew up and became brave heroes. The first was a strong boxer, the second a valiant auriga and indomitable warrior. When he was killed, Castore shared immortality with his brother Polluce, moving to alternate days from Olympus to the underworld. And the two remained forever inseparable, fueling their myth.

  • I saw twice a day the brothers of the complex twins who shaved with horses in the hills of Quirinale and Campidorio, together with horses, and whohad it. "Zeus, the swan, seduced Queen Sparta Radar, causing the radar to produce a confusing egg, and the eggs brought the twins of Castor and Polydecase. He was a good equestrian, a good fighter, a good navigator, and hit an arrow in a battle, but he was impressed by the death, so he ended up at Gemini. More than a selfish summary, but it is also strange that only the statue of the elder brother Castor becomes a tourist point, so please look at the statue of the next brother Polydeu case.

  • Very beautiful statue.
  • Pollux and Castor where two mythological creatures that allegedly stood side by side with the Romans during a decisive battle. Therefore, they built a sculpture on their behalf and here it stands
  • Bigger than life and amazing
  • At the top of the Ramp you can admire the statues of the dioscuri, the twins Castor and Pollux. On the left we have the Castor: they were placed in this position in 1584, but were found in 1560, during the works within the Ghetto and were supposed to be part of a temple dedicated to them. Wonderful in their Majesty.
