Sanctuary of Giove Anxur , a Roman temple built on a hill some 227 m (745 ft) tall, offers impressive views of the nearby town and the Mediterranean sea. The substructure dates back to the first century BCE. The ruins themselves include a fortified camp, the temple itself and its terrace, as well as a smaller temple with traces of ninth-century frescoes. Roman cults worshiping the gods Venus and possibly Jupiter celebrated rites here. Bring sturdy footwear and be aware that the inclines are steep.

A lot of history in this place, interesting to learn about it! Tickets for 7€ and we got an information brochure at the entrance. The staff were really helpful and nice. Toilets and parking at the entrance. Unfortunately the park need a renovation, it could be so much more and the history would be presented better. Some places were tagged down, there were areas closed by plastic bands and the information boards were maybe a bit few and old. Nevertheless it's still worth the visit! Tip: Bring your own drink and snack and have a lunch with a view.
place with nice architectural building and good views. Ample of photo opportunities for a keen eye.. best of all, you can climb all the way to the top in a car..
