Minturno’s Surrounding Villages and Towns

The village of Santa Maria Infante has a church which, over time, has taken on different names: Santa Maria de Olifano, Santa Maria dello Lévano, and Santa Maria dell’Elefante. Inside there is a painting of the Madonna delle Grazie with Saints by Sebastiano Conca.  The church was destroyed during World War II and subsequently rebuilt in a modern style.

In Santa Maria Infante there is a beautiful monument dedicated to the people of Minturno who left their beloved town to begin new lives in foreign distant lands.

There is a large War Memorial dedicated to the citizens of Minturno who lost their lives during  the two World Wars.

Below is a view of the Aurunci Mounains from just outside Santa Maria Infante.

The medieval hamlet of Pulcherini dates back to the 15th century.  It has an 18th century church dedicated to San Giuseppe which was badly damaged during the WWII, but has since been restored.
