Sanctuary of Giove Anxur, Terracina

3.6
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. Visit the on-site bar for refreshments before hiking back down.

  • Wonderful weekend at Terracina with visit to the temple where I saw a marked improvement over the last time visited with its stunning views. To die for. ...

  • Several times we had visited, but never see the temple. And now we realized that we had lost. Impressive ruins and well-preserved. The scenery is magnificent and sweeps over the city, in the North to the Circeo, South to the Gulf of Gaeta and on a clear day up Mount Vesuvius. Having regard to the age, the cost of access was by 3 euro, right amount for maintenance and service personnel. A 15 minute movie explains comprehensively the historical and archaeological sites. An attraction not to be missed! Attached photo.

  • I've been several times on vacation with my parents or in the evening with my friends in Singapore, but I never visited the Temple of Jupiter. Intrigued, I went out on top, and I found that was monopolized by private individuals, probably, who taxed the entrance with a note from figure, in my opinion, excessive. Pay 6 euros for access to the archaeological area, without any reduction for students, without even having the support of a guide (view the figure), but especially given the free accessibility until last summer, I think it is a pretence really very risky . I'm not saying that it should not be taxed the entry, but I think it's fair to be honest with the service which is then offered. I turned around and I went away. And like me and other people there for the same reason. I would recommend managers to find a compromise!
