Nice to See

After a new, local friend hand-drew Pisco Montano on a make-shift map for us which included his recommended things to see in Terracina, we bicycled to the port and viewed the giant stone promontory from below. Spectacular to think about the depth of the cuts!

From a distance this rock face is magnificent. It is best viewed from the Port of Terracina with the Temple overlooking it.

When you approach it, the view is still good and you will note that someone has carved out an entrance way and there seems to be windows up high. There is a rumour that a criminal used it as a hideout.

There is an arch there that marks the path of the Appian Way, but there is no physical evidence of the road at this location, just a monument.

If you were to leave now, you would give it a higher rating, so if you want to keep that thought, don't try to walk up the side of the cliff on the right side which is easily negotiable. Thousands before did just that and left more rubbish than I thought possible. There are truckloads of rubbish from clothing to food tins to shoes, sleeping bags and garbage bags. It looks like people camped there and just trashed the place.

If you were going to have the Olympics of Rubbish, it would be held here.

I have written many reviews especially in Italy which I and my family love to visit, but sadly this place needs a little TLC.

If you want to enjoy this natural area, enjoy it from the parking lot and take photos from the harbour. I hope that this is helpful.

One of the most exciting place to visit in Terracina.
The construction of the Via Appia in 312 BCE added to its importance: the road at first crossed the hill at the back of the promontory by a steep ascent and descent. An attempt was made in 184 BCE to get round it by an embankment thrown out into the sea: but it was probably not until early in Trajan's time that a cut in the rocks at the foot of the promontory (Pisco Montano) finally solved the problem. The depth of the cut is indicated by marks on the vertical wall at intervals of 10 Roman feet; the lowest mark, about 1 m above the present road, is CXX, corresponding to 36 meters.
