First of all let me say that at this moment there I am going to write four pages in this blog telling you about the story of Genzano, this page will be about the physical Genzano, there will be another page about my own life story, and also one page written in Italian, which will be about the history of Genzano as written from the writer Ettore Lorito, who is one of the few writers that have written about Genzano.
In this page let us start with the old monuments of Genzano
This is the other castle in the country of Genzano built on a roundish hill on one side, it is a very old castle, and although there is not a real written history, it is believed to be the castle that the Norman used when they invaded southern Italy about the year 1000 A.D. or there about.
This is the main fountain called Cavallina, it has seven spout that continually run in the fountain if I remember right, its name literally means the horse fountain, because the large trough that you see here-under was/is used to water the horses and other large animals when they come to town.
The churches of Genzano:
This is the oldest church of Genzano, build from Aquilina Sancia, around 1300 A. D. Attached to this church was the monastery that Aquilina Sancia started.
Another Curch of Maria ss delle grazie. Built during 1600 or there about
Old church called The Convento. This church had also a monastery of monks
