Anzio Italy Basilica and Sanctuary of  Santa Teresa di Gesù Bambino Anzio Italy Piazza Pia Fountain

In Piazza Pia is a circular fountain which stands in front of the church of Santi Pio e Antonio, which was constructed in the middle of the 19th century.


The Basilica and Sanctuary of  Santa Teresa di Gesù Bambino, built in the 1920’s, houses the relics of Santa Teresa who was made a saint only 28 years after her death.  The edifice has an elegant tall bell tower and a cloister with white marble columns.

Near the district called Lavinio, on a small rocky headland stands the watchtower of Tor Caldara, built in the mid 17th century, and a WWF Nature Reserve.  The cliffs here are rich in fossils. Also in this area you can find characteristic sulphur springs which bubble up in little pools giving off the strong smell of rotten eggs. Dating from Roman times  there were mines here for extracting the sulphur, but these were abandoned in the 19th century.
