The train station of Latina is only ten minutes by car from Sermoneta,
and with the train journey to Rome only half an hour, daily
sight-seeing visits to Rome are an attractive proposition. However,
there is a wealth of tourist possibilities in the environs of
Sermoneta; some of them are noted below. The ABBEY of VALVISCIOLO, a
few kilometers north of SERMONETA, was established by Basilian monks
in the VIIIth century and passed to the Knights Templar who
reconstructed it in Gothic style using local stone. The Knights
immortalized their ownership by sculpting their cross on the façade.
In the XIIIth century, the Cistercians imposed their own style on the
interior and in the decoration. Inside, frescoes by Nicola Circignani
((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) and Emilio Savonanzi ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) can still be seen. Next
to the church is the monastery with its cloisters.
Not far from SERMONETA (6km) are the ruins of the ancient town of
NINFA, the “Pompei of the Middle Ages”, destroyed in 1381. The
destruction of NINFA was the result of a feud between two branches of
the Caetani family, the winners of which exacted this violent revenge.
The town had contained within its walls ten churches, four
monasteries, a municipal Palace, and a castle with a high tower. The
ruins remained untouched for centuries; the crystal waters from the
Lepino hills flowing through the lake and streams of the abandoned
site. Today, all that remains of old NINFA are the ruins of the
castle, the mills, and the churches, reflected in the waters of its
lake. In 1920 Gelasio Caetani converted the site into a natural Oasis,
a wonderful park of exotic and rare plants that thrive in this
world-renowned micro-climate. These extraordinary gardens can be
visited on the first Saturday and Sunday of each month from April to
An extraordinary natural site is the NATIONAL PARK OF CIRCEO, host to
the Monte Circeo, 20 km of superb sandy beaches, four lakes and a
forest in its 8,500 hectares (18,700 acres). Recognised by UNESCO as a
“World Heritage Site”, the park contains 1,237 species of fauna
and 250 species of bird, and wild boar, deer and foxes thrive in the
forest. It also contains ruins of Emperor Domitian’s Villa and
Lucullo’s Spring. The 1,700 foot Monte Circeo is believed to be the
site of Circe and her Sirens, described in Homer’s Iliad. Circe
drugged Ulysses’ 23 companions and turned them into swine; however,
Ulysses avoided this fate with an antidote provided by Hermes, and
persuaded Circe to fall in love with him, which helps explain her
decision to return his companions
