Shrine of Juno
Our most family-friendly house, kids and adults can reunite here. A very comfortable historical apartment for families, companionships with four people, where you can refresh yourself in separate bathrooms after long walks and picnics.
The living room-kitchen-dining room triangle is a great place to sit together to dine or talk near to the fireplace. At the end of the day we can rest our heads in its intimate bedrooms.
When the weather is good you can admire the view of the emblematic, torn-towers of the iconic sight of the Chapel of Sitke and the beautiful pictorial sight of the nearby hills.
This house is free of smoking and television!
Interesting fact about this shrine is the beamed ceiling, which reaches back to ancient plans. Walls, the windbreaks, and the cornerstones are made of roman-type bricks.
Wide open parking lot, a barbecue place hiding amongst the roman ruins and lush vegetation surrounds the shrines on 2000 square meters.
Juno, is the wife of Jupiter, and also an ancient Italian goddess of the birth and marriage. June received its name from this goddess. Juno's duty is to ensure the fertility and the chastity of women. She was the guardian of ancient Rome, the romans offered her sacrifices on the Capitoleum. She was the queen of all gods, her celebrations were called Matronalia on each 1st of March.
Goose was her sacred animal. This is why the romans had geese in the Capitoleum. When the galls have invaded Rome in 391 B.C., they tried to famish Rome. After a while she galls were impatient and tried to sneak into the city, the geese alarmed the romans. They thanked Juno and gave Junos the "Moneta" name as well, which means "The cautionary". This later became the name of a nearby coin-maker as well, and they started to call the coins moneta soon.
The word moneta is the ancient form of the english word 'money'.Back
