SPERLONGA
Pearl of the Mediterranean

From “Speloncae” to “The pearl of the Tyrrhenian”, it has always been named for its peculiarities. Sperlonga, a small village of just under 4 thousand souls (a number that doubles or more during the summer months), stands out with its whiteness stretching out into the sea exactly halfway between the gulf of Circeo and that of Gaeta, still halfway between Rome and Naples. Blue Flag for 25 years in a row, crystal clear waters home to a unique variety of fish and above and below sea landscapes appreciated by artists over the course of millennia. Suffice it to say that in these places the villas of many Roman patricians were built, first of all the Emperor Tiberius who arranged and modified one of the largest and most beautiful caves to make it the home with lots of “conveniences” such as banquet halls and fish farms. , most likely moray eels with delicious and tender flesh.

Sperlonga, which is part of the circuit of the “most beautiful villages in Italy” today welcomes many tourists from all over the world, and not only in summer. “Blue Flag” for 25 years and awarded by Legambiente for the cleanliness of the city and its bathing waters, the mild climate often attracts visitors from northern Europe

The characteristic Torre Truglia, which literally rises on the extreme tip of the promontory of S. Magno, is very popular. Recently renovated, today it offers spaces for cultural and artistic events and an organization that deals with spreading the culture of the sea and local coasts in general. Many other towers were present along the coasts, especially towards the south, the ruins of which are now almost invisible.
