At the summit of Mount Fusco in the Aurunci mountain range, in the comune of Itri, stands the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Civita, in the care of the Padri Passionisti, who venerate the holy image of an 8th-century Virgin. The citizens of nearby Itri make the pilgrimage here on foot every year. Not far away, and in the same comune, is the 16th century Convento dei Padri Passionisti, built on a hill which has been completely covered by the urban development of the postwar period. Annexed to the Monastery is the church of Santa Maria di Loreto, home to a painting of San Paolo della Croce, who founded the Padri Passionisti order.
