Share
The village stands on a tufaceous hill of volcanic origin that overlooks the Aniene Valley and is the third largest municipality in the Castelli Romani area. The places of interest in the village are the Church of Santa Maria Assunta, Palazzo Borghese and the library of Palazzo Annibaldeschi. Just outside the center, going up to the Convent of San Silvestro, equipped with an art gallery, you will find the tiny sanctuary of the Madonna del Castagno.

About the village

It rises entirely clustered around its small historical centre, below the ancient Monastero di San Silvestro, a hermitage for meditation and prays. Monte Compatri with its 576 metres a.s.l. is the third highest town of Castelli romani, overlooking the Valle dell’Aniene and confining with Rome. it rises on a hill of tuff volcanic rock and the houses have underground cellars (as in almost all towns of Castelli Romani) excavated in tuff rock forming an intricate network of tunnels. On certain occasions, especially during the christmas period, in these underground cellars the town organizes touristic-cultural events. from a high position dominating the central residential area, stands the Monastero di San Silvestro, attended by those wishing to spend a moment of meditation submerged in the peaceful surroundings of nature. the territory of Monte Compatri also includes part of the tusculum where it is possible to reach monte salomone at an altitude of 773 metres a.s.l. it is a very interesting walk, both from a naturalistic and geological point of view.
