Gaeta
The ancient fortress of Gaeta seen from the sea
Its origins date back to the Middle Ages, it was then an important Bourbon fortress.
On 25 November 1848, Pope Pius IX took refuge in Gaeta, a guest of King Ferdinand II of Bourbon, following the proclamation of the Roman Republic by Giuseppe Mazzini, and remained there until 4 September 1849, a period during which Gaeta was the seat institutional and "de facto" capital of the State of the Church, representing the greatest political-religious reference center in the whole world of Christianity.
On 13 February 1861 Francis II of Bourbon surrendered to Gaeta, the last bastion of his reign, capitulating, after 102 heroic days of resistance to the bombing and the siege of the Savoyard troops of General Enrico Cialdini (siege of Gaeta 1860-1861): it ceased so to exist the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.
