WHAT TO VISIT A
THE SANCTUARY OF THE SPLIT MOUNTAIN
A legend has it that when Jesus Christ died on the cross the veil of the Temple of Jerusalem was torn apart causing three deep cracks in the hard rock of what is now known as the Split Mountain of Gaeta. On this promontory stands the Sanctuary of the SS. Trinità while to the left of the church one of the cracks leads to the so-called Grotta del Turco, places of pilgrimage and suggestive tourist destinations, to which other stories and important personalities are linked. Continuing a staircase of 300 steps of the Sanctuary you will reach the sea level at the wonderful Grotta del Turco.
CHURCH OF SAN FRANCESCO
Imagine the profile of Gaeta without the imposing Gothic silhouette of the Church of San Francesco, with the famous Statue of Religion and its monumental staircase is practically impossible. To reach it you have to cross an uphill road that winds from the historic center, but once you reach your efforts, they will be amply rewarded by the breathtaking view over the entire Gulf of Gaeta. The Church of San Francesco is an absolute symbol of the city, a great artistic heritage. The atmosphere that is breathed in this sacred place has something magical. From the square that you reach once you go up the staircase you see one of the most beautiful views of the coast. The church of San Francesco has a vertical development thanks to the systematic use of the pointed arch
THE 7 BEACHES OF GAETA
Serapo, Fontania, Quaranta Remi, Ariana, Arenauta, San Vito and Sant'Agostino. These 7 beaches of Gaeta are located in that long stretch of sea that runs from the rocky coast of the Montagna Spaccata to the foot of Monte Orlando to the suggestive Sperlonga caves. 10 kilometers of beach interspersed only by small coves and rocky points. The peculiarity common to all these beaches is the presence of a very fine-grained white sand, clear sea and dense Mediterranean vegetation that surrounds it. At the same time each of these has some distinctive features that make it unique: the Ariana beach, for example, has been repeatedly recognized as a Blue Flag for its clear waters while the Sant'Agostino beach is known for the thick presence of bars and restaurants, but also for the large free beach space. There really is something for all tastes and needs.
