An open-air marvel

The Ara di Circe is situated at an elevation of 540m, that is to say on the Promontory's highest point, at its westernmost end. It consists of a platform, which rests on a substructure and has been identified as an altar to Circe. The substructure under the sacred area was realised by means of two mighty containment walls, reinforced with pillars where pressure is stronger. Some structures outcrop near the platform above, but the Ara's plant cannot be clearly discerned.
