The culture of Lazio comes from afar. Ancient and recent history have built a large net
of palaces, churches, castles, archaeological and museum sites all over the territory.
For those who are looking for a cultural itinerary outside the city of Rome, there is also
the opportunity to visit the museum system of the Castelli Romani and Prenestini with
the Civic Museum of Alatri, the Romanesque Cathedral of Anagni, the city of Popes,
but also the Castle of Itri in the land of Brigands, were an ancient tale tells that a
crocodile was hidden in a tower to eat the enemies; or the Castle of Fumone, with the
highest hanging garden in Europe; the museum in the Abbey of Montecassino; the
Casamari Abbey in Veroli, one of the best example of Cistercian Gothic architecture;
the Biblioteca Giovardiana with miniatures, drawings and manuscripts from the 18 th
Century and the stunning Certosa of Trisulti in Collepardo, declared a national
monument, just to name a few.
