This place is located on the south side of Mount Orlando; it was September and so there was no problem parking where the little belvedere offers a stunning view of Serapo Beach. From there it's a short walk to the Sanctuary of Montagna Spaccata. There between sky and sea and the forest, there are three splits/cracks in the rock which... More

Nature has the power to shape our surroundings and sometimes they come out to be interesting and beautiful and need to be seen by us. And sometimes by chance they have history too. This story about the Turkish man and his hand is very intriguing. Recommended!

We had promised ourselves that we would take a look at Montagna Spaccata, the split mountain, but waited until we had a day which promised to be not too hot. We started of at the Serapo beach entrance to the park and walked slowly up the road following the signs for the monastery della Trinita and just beyond is the... More

A beautiful coastal walk around the headland of Gaeta with stunning views of the Mediterranean but make sure you take your walking shoes a little steep for some.

We visited without a guide, so we missed the lore. Amazed by the beauty and history here. A must see if you visit the area. Not if you have mobility issues, though. Uneven ground and narrow stairs. Great place for pictures.

What an amazing place to see. We came in the afternoon and walked through the Montagna. It was absolutely beautiful. We also got to be there for the sunset.. Totally amazing and a must to see.

We spend the afternoon visit this attraction that is located on the Hill side of Gaeta Latina Province. It is very nice and also there is a legend about it that is better to be explained by a tour guide. When you visit the Montagna Spaccata, make sure you also visit la Grotta del Turco that is amazing, make sure... More

The Montagna Spaccata is most definitely worth a visit The views are spectacular and awesome. The navetta bus takes you up there, if you don't fancy the walk. A must to see if you are in the vicinity.

Well worth the visit, easy access also with kids. Great views for pics. Donations for enrance fee. Stairs up and down so not for mobility access.

Gaeta is one of the best beach that you could visit near Rome o Napoli (Naples), but more than that... There is a way that could bring you up to the hill :-) with amazing view :-) and finally will bring you to the Santuary of "Montagna Spaccata", where the rocks split marking the death of Christ. You will see... More
