You will get lost in the complex beauty of one of the most ancient monumental specimen in the Roman area. The building is kept in excellent conditions and the museum visit is rather exhaustive and capturing. We have been fortunate to have been guided by Lucia, a knowledgeable and passionate guide who lives and breathes the beauty of the building. An incredible ancient mosaic is preserved in the museum. The walk on the outdoor grounds is magical and the views are breathtaking!!!! This is by far my favourite place near Rome.

Every tourist heading to Rome should see this spectacular sanctuary dedicated to the Dea Fortuna. This archeological site as well as Ostia Antica should be the must sees prior to heading to Rome. It is a pity that not more people know of this place and that it isn't on the tourist map, so to speak.
So well maintained as a museum which is also unusual for Italy. If you can book a guide called Diana ( like the greek goddess of war) then it will be a visit you will never forget!

The only way to appreciate the size & complexity of this temple is to walk the grounds.

Imagine it as it was...the hub of the area, bustling with those who came to offer sacrifices and ask for blessings from Fortuna.

First visit the museum at the top (a model of the temple is upstairs) to know what you're looking at and walking through.

Then enjoy your day in the temple.

The Sanctuary to the Roman Goddess Fortuna was built by the Emperor Augustus, a man who had a lot to be thankful for. It is worth a trip to Palestrina to view the mosaic of the Nile preserved within the Sanctuary.

Breathtaking views over the valley. A nice little museum attached and the remnants of a massive Roman temple complex.

This enormous sanctuary is truly unique in its kind, partly used as a museum, the remains of which are still impressive, making it clear what the original construction must have looked like, even if the Barberini later built their palace on top of it and everything merged together in a perspective of great scenographic impact. The museum is easily visited, the terraces below are worth a walk to understand the structure of the building, for the hole further down you need a separate ticket; the Barberini palace is still inhabited by the family but they sporadically give guided tours so you need to inquire at the museum. All of this deserves greater tourist notoriety because it is decidedly special.

The Sanctuary of Fortuna Primigenia in Palestrina is the main historical attraction of the ancient village.
The architectural complex was built in Roman times, as thanks to the goddess Fortuna, a pagan deity, whose cult was abandoned with the adoption of Christianity by Emperor Theodosius.
The Roman theater is splendid, consisting of an enormous auditorium that takes advantage of the natural slope of the land.
The splendid Archaeological Museum is located near the sanctuary.
Absolutely not to be missed.
