Visit to the medieval Village of Sermoneta – Historic center, Castello dei Caetani, Valvisciolo Abbey

 

 

Guided tour in the enchanting setting of the medieval village of Sermoneta, of the historic center, Castello dei Caetani and Valvisciolo Abbey (in Romanesque-Cistercian style).

Background:

The territory of Sermoneta was already populated in the Archaic period. Near the current Abbey of Valvisciolo stood the ancient city of the Volsci, Sulmo, cited by Virgil in the Aeneid.

The expansion of the Pontine marshes and the invasions of the Saracens pushed the inhabitants of the ancient Sulmo to move to the current Sermoneta.

As a free municipality, it soon became a property of the Caetani family (1297) which made it the center of their dominions over the whole of southern Lazio, because of its fortunate position on the Pedemontana road (artery that had replaced the Appia in the connections between the North and the South of Italy).

The inhabitants of Sermoneta, first defeated the city of Ninfa and then the neighboring Sezze to gain control of the road and customs passage. The Caetani Castle and the Duomo date back to this period, perfectly preserved.
