Cassino, Frosinone

Cassino, the southernmost city of the Valle Latina, is a small treasure in the province of Frosinone. Known historically as a martyr city due to the bombings during World War II that razed it to the ground, it now preserves a remarkable artistic and cultural heritage. Here, Saint Benedict of Norcia built the Abbey of Montecassino, which today is one of the most appreciated monuments. Points of interest include the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and San Benedetto Abate, the Palagio Badiale, the archaeological park of Casinum, a wonderful historic center, and many other sites of interest.
