Santuario Italico di Pietrabbondante

The Italic Sanctuary of Pietrabbondante preserves the most important monumental testimonies of the Samnite religion. Its position at an altitude of one thousand meters allows you to have a view of a large part of the Sannio and suggests its centrality from an ideological and political point of view. Unlike the other sacred buildings discovered in the area, this was a sanctuary of public worship throughout the Sannio Pentro. In this place rites were celebrated in honor of abstract deities such as Honos (military honor), Virtus (military and political virtue) and Ops Consiva (opulence of the State). In his temples the warriors dedicated their weapons to the enemy for the glorification of the state. It is possible to admire the spectacular temple complex B- theater, built between the end of the II and the beginning of the I century BC, the Roman tabernae, and the temple A, erected after the Second Punic War (218-202 BC). Among the buildings discovered in recent years there is the domus publica, considered the first archeologically known example of this type of architecture in Italy. This building had the function of accommodating the high priest, the priestly curia and the meddix tuticus (supreme magistrate) on the occasion of particular festivities.
