The Last Guardian

Established in 1988, Tor Caldara Regional Natural Reserve covers about 44 ha.

It lies on the Tyrrhenian coast, in the southern area of Rome and its territory belongs to the municipality of Anzio. Recently ranked as one of the Sites of European Importance, Tor Caldara is a real treasure with rare evidences of the ancient coastal forests that occupied the entire coastal area of the southern Lazio.

At the end of the reserve, there is Tor Caldara's peculiar monument, the tower that gave it the name. It was built in the 17th century to defend the shore from upcoming armed landing.

 

Nowdays, even if the original function came less, it stands still there, overlooking the lazio's shore with his outline.
