Monte Porzio Catone

An archaeological site of great value, it is located in Monte Porzio Catone, near Villa Mondragone, and houses remains from various eras, from Ancient Rome to the Renaissance. Supposedly, it was originally a Roman villa that belonged to famous figures such as Agrippina, Nero, and Domitian; later, the complex was converted by the Altemps and Borghese families into a hunting preserve and Italian garden. In fact, its name comes from the term “barco,” which was used to refer to the enclosure for hunting wild animals. A place rich in history and charm, it offers spectacular views of the Capital and the Roman countryside.
