Guided visit to the Garden of Ninfa, continuing towards the enchanting village of Sermoneta with a visit to Caetani’s Castle.

Some historical hints:

The territory of Sermoneta was already populated in archaic times. In this area, where Abbey of Valvisciolo currently standing, were the ancient City of Sulmo, cited by Virgil in Eneide. The expansion of Pontine swamps and the invasions of the Saracens pushed the inhabitants of the ancient Sulmo to move to the present Sermoneta, which is mentioned with this name already in the 11th century.In 1297 Boniface VIII Caetani bought for 140,000 golden ducats, Sermoneta, San Donato and Bassiano by expanding its vast possessions. In 1499 the applicants complained of the Caetani Vassals and neighboring countries favored the intervention of Pope Alexander VI Borgia, who took the opportunity to excommunicate the Caetani with the “Sacri Apostolatus Ministero” bubble and confiscate all the properties by giving them to her daughter Lucrezia, who administered the fortress until her father’s death, and then brought her to Caetani. Since then, Sermoneta assumed a role of great importance, becoming an economic, political and cultural point of reference for its strategic location, which could control Pedemontana, the only link between Rome and Naples. The importance and respect recognized by the papacy are evidenced by the participation of Onorato IV Caetani, in the capacity of commander of the papal infantry, in the battle of Lepanto (1571).
