Mysterious megaliths Alatri

All known Egipetskie pyramids, Machu Picchu and Stonehenge… we admire these ancient and mysterious buildings. Did you know that the ancient megalithic buildings in Italy?

Today we will get acquainted with the city of Alatri, located in the province of Frosinone, Lazio region and it is famous for its megalithic walls of the Acropolis. In the ancient Alatri called Aletrium (Aletrium) and he was one of the main centers of the Italian people of the ancient ernici mountains.

The Acropolis – the oldest and famous building of the city Alatri, his emblem. It is still unknown when was the Acropolis built, by whom and for what, there is only speculation.

The Acropolis is an earthquake-resistant structure, built using huge stones, laid dry, without any ligamentous material. It is located in the highest part of the city, its construction was begun probably in the 7th century BC The Acropolis for a long time had two functions: a sacred place, here very probably was a temple dedicated to Saturn, God the founder of the city and the second function — the fortress (of a defensive garrison), where the population took refuge in case of danger.

Archaeologists continue to make new discoveries in this mysterious place. For example, scientists after much research found that in 1550 BC through the lower door you could see the three star belt of the constellation Orion and it may very well be, this door served as the telescope. If Yes, then why not assume that the entire Acropolis is a huge astronomical instrument. The form of the Acropolis corresponds to the shape of the constellation of the Twins, here’s another riddle.

Interestingly, Alatri is not the only city in Italy where there are megalithic structures. Megaliths are located in Lazio. Arpino, Ferentino, San Felice Circeo, Veroli, Measles, Anagni, as well as in other regions of Italy: Abruzzo. Tuscany, Umbria, Campania, Puglia and Molise .
