The picturesque medieval town wonderfully situated on the slopes of Monte Cavo, preserves the memory of the ancient Cabum Latina, a place sacred to Iuppiter Latialis. The most striking about Rocca di Papa is its splendid panoramic position: climbing up to a height of 681 metres a.s.l. along the inner side of Monte Cavo, you can have a glance over one of the most beautiful landscapes of the area. A visit to the town - the only one among Castelli Romani that kept its medieval layout - offers picturesque glimpses of houses clinging to the rock and the intricate maze of steep, small alleys hidden among the buildings. The residential area is dominated by the Belvedere della Fortezza Medievale, a very valuable archaeological site where you can enjoy a unique panorama that arrives to the sea. The territory of Rocca di Papa is very extensive and overlooks a wide, flat valley, called the Vivaro. Nowadays it is the favourite spot for those who wish to spend a relaxing day, and for expert horsemen and horsewomen who practice horseriding in the wide open space.
