The Historic Centre of Itri

A visit up to the historic centre of Itri is recommended and it has wonderful views of the lower half or the town, and the Aurunci Mountains.

The Medieval Centre and Jewish Quarter

In the historic centre the castle and medieval town were guarded by a ring of strong defensive walls. There were several gates that lead into the fortified town: Porta Mamurra, Porta San Martino, Porta Ripa and Porta Cea. A series of steep narrow flights of stone stairs lead to the centre of the old town. In the heart of the historic centre of Sant’Angelo you will find the ancient church of San Michele Arcangelo. Closeby in Piazza Fra Diavolo there are the remains of the church of Santa Maria Maggiore that was destroyed in the bombing of the Second World War.

There was once a separate Jewish ghetto within the historic centre. This district was named the Vico Judea, and had its own synagogue. The old town is a maze of narrow little streets and alleyways. There is something interesting to see around every corner.
