Santuario della Santissima Trinita - Della Montagna Spaccata
The Sanctuary of the Split Mountain is a suggestive place, carved out of the deep fissure of the promontory, overlooking the sea. According to the history, St. Filippo Neri and Pope Pius IX himself prayed here during the forced exile of 1849 in Gaeta. In the area of the Sanctuary there is the "Turk’s Cave" (a huge natural cavity) where it is possible to walk up through comfortable steps, until reaching the belvedere. According to local Catholic tradition, the rocks here cracked in three places at the very moment that Jesus died on the cross.
