On the slopes of the Lepini mountains, in the Lazio Apennines, extend the plain of the Pontine countryside and the marshes, before the reclamation in the Fascist era. On the edges, the inhabited centres of Terracina and Sonnino are the theatre of scenes of peasant life. Then we see the monuments and natural beauties of the place, such as the Abbey of Fossanova, the park of Lake Fogliano, and the park with the ruins of the vanished city of Ninfa, founded in Roman times in honour of the deities of spring waters and destroyed in 1382 by the troops of the antipope during the Great Schism.
