A Holy place to visit at least once in a lifetime.

A unique Sanctuary with a chapel built in a crevice in the rock formed by the earthquake at the time of death on the cross of Jesus Christ.

It's unique and special! Go at 10 am so you can find parking. It's also a great time because its quiet and fewer people. Visit the church, the split mountain and take a walk in the wooded area. All is spiritual!

Very worthwhile to climb up the hill and be awed by this unique site which indeed deserves a mention among the wonders of the world - especially considering the myth it is surrounded with

From there it's a short walk to the Sanctuary of Montagna Spaccata. There between sky and sea and the forest, there are three splits/cracks in the rock which... More

Nature has the power to shape our surroundings and sometimes they come out to be interesting and beautiful and need to be seen by us. And sometimes by chance they have history too. This story about the Turkish man and his hand is very intriguing. Recommended!

A beautiful coastal walk around the headland of Gaeta with stunning views of the Mediterranean but make sure you take your walking shoes a little steep for some.
