The Venue

The Venue: the Angevine castle sits in the heart of Gaeta. The lower part of the castle was built during the rule of House of Anjou; the upper section was constructed by order of Emperor Charles V. The tall tower rising from the castle is the home of the Royal Chapel. The Montagna Spaccata, or Split Mountain, offers panoramic views and has a church sitting at its base. Its 35 steps take you to the fissure in the mountain, which overlooks the ocean and surrounding countryside.
