Great view, but positon on the map is incorrect- it is ca. 10 km from Formia and you need to be prepared to drive some 5 km almost off road and then walk 30 min in the mountains but the view deserves the effort...

Looking up from Formia you can see the top of this mountain that is shaped like a church dome. Even from the valley you can see the statue of Christ, placed there in the year 1900 to commemorate the coming of the new century, on top of the mountain. The place is accessible by car going up the Maranola road and climbing up to 1300 meters to an open area where one can park the car. Here you will also find BBQ pits and tables for picnics. the main attraction, however, is still about a mile away following a winding trail that leads to the Redentore peak. The view from this place is unbelievable, you can see as far as Pozzuoli (near Naples) and you can see all of the Pontine Islands as well as Ischia and Capri. Following another trail that is easily visible and well marked you can reach a grotto that was turned into a chapel where the locals venerate Saint Michael the Archangel. On the day of our excursion, we left Formia which was dealing with oppressive heat, but at the Redentore there was a fresh breeze and a very agreeable temperature. If you do decide to make the trek, allow a full day and bring food for a picnic. Also make sure that the breaks on your car are working properly; the ascend may not be a problem but the descent is very steep and breaks easily overheat and fail.
