Sanctuary of Giove Anxur , a Roman temple built on a hill some 227 m (745 ft) tall, offers impressive views of the nearby town and the Mediterranean sea. The substructure dates back to the first century BCE. The ruins themselves include a fortified camp, the temple itself and its terrace, as well as a smaller temple with traces of ninth-century frescoes. Roman cults worshiping the gods Venus and possibly Jupiter celebrated rites here. Bring sturdy footwear and be aware that the inclines are steep.

  • Wonderful place! I liked it a lot. The visit is more precious for the panoramic view to the temple itself, since the latter was very little. Entrance fee is €6. I will definitely return to take more pictures!

  • Wonderful though a little tiring. To do when there is fresher because the heat doesn't help. Not very suitable for young children or elderly

  • Interesting place, very nice view on the other that makes enjoying a great overview of the entire city. The video at the entrance is very limited, so much so that I don't recommend renting the audio guide for whoever looks at it.

  • Excellent view to all directions. Coffee on The peak tastes great. Really ancient location. Must-see when visiting Terracina!
  • very interesting ancient building. We had the opportunity to see a Video about ancient Temples in Italy. Well researched and presented and worth to see. Although we did not enter the Sanctuary of Giove Anxur, the overview on top of the high coast above of Terraccina, Italy was fascinating! Come and visit this ancient building! Ciao, Wolfgang
  • An interesting Historical site above Terracina, with beautiful views, clean grounds and a good coffee shop to boot!
  • Incredible site. Breathtaking views from up here.
  • Definitely beautiful and picturesque. Used to go visit every time we were in Terracina until it stopped being free. Really upset they charge so much to get in. Would still go if it wasn't so expensive. That being said, if you are in town only once it is worth it.
