Tourist routes
A land of ancient tradition and culture


In the Land of Ciociaria, beyond of the industrialization of overbuilding, there are, therefore, jewels bequeathed by ancient philosophers, theologians, poets and writers, lovers of the beautiful simple artisans, builders of environmentally friendly' environment, as in the case of this structure. Jewelry, largely unknown to the public: not only the great abbeys, remember, with the 'addition of Monte Cassino, the great churches and cathedrals, but also the small villages, small towns, the sources and sources with mouths and washing of inlaid marble and scratched, in full and the land; traces of gigantic walls called "Pelasgian" or "gigantic" or "polygon" or even, perhaps improperly "Saturnie", in reference to some centers as Arpino; ruins scattered, each historical period, of mountains, hills and plains, (the Via Latina), the rhythms, folklore, "cioce", the colors and the truths of the landscape dominated by green throughout the territory of Monte San Giovanni Campano, including our Contrada Civitella, is characterized by dark green of the "sacred olive tree", the white almond trees in spring and last but not least, the wholesomeness of 'pristine hill air. Often the 'glorification of these things natural, simple, free from exploitation and technological adjustments often do not comply with planning and in harmony with the beauty of the area, seem to be considered only in a consumer perspective, marketable and thus are not adequately publicized the "tourist modern "that often do not look for what is known or globalized, but something different, maybe you read about in books or prints imprinted in old and forgotten, to feel at ease in terms of emotional and spiritual. He wants to rediscover the forgotten, the hidden, out of conformity, generator enrichment. Ciociaria, is a land to discover, considering a past, historical and cultural, not inferior to other Italian companies. A past some 'forgotten and treated in reference to the history of Rome and, often, almost removed by the ciociari. It seems significant that the writer Anthony Julius Bragaglia Frosinone, with a critical tone, he remarked: - When the boulders of the Volscians were freshly cut white stone, the Valley of the Tiber was a quagmire mixed Pontinie the Marshes and the earth stands the 'great Rome resounded of-frogs. Without speaking of great men such as Cicero, Caius Marius, Thomas d 'Aquino, Baronius or places of the spirit of Christianity, not randomly chosen by St. Benedict and mystics of all times, founding the aforementioned Abbeys: Trisulti Casamari Montecassino. The Ciociari are the descendants of the early Italic peoples, which, as already mentioned, the people came before the pre-Hellenic civilization prefenicia and how, precisely, the Hethei-Pelasgians.


Beyond the mountains Lepine, and the Ausonians Aurunci and the chain of Ernici, surround and enclose nearly the whole Roman peasant, the Tyrrhenian Sea. And 'that embraces the Pontine coast seaside resorts with linear and rocky shores, too' it full of history and prehistory, as well as beautiful landscapes and architectural references with poetic and literary history and mythology: Terracina, San Felice Circeo, Terracina, Fondi, Sperlonga, Formia to the Gulf of Gaeta. * Add to those places, which from our hill are no more than 60/70 KM, becomes a way as possible and fascinating for the variety of the landscape that one crosses.
