Brindisi: the terminal columns of the Via Appia

The remains of two Roman columns, at the bottom of the stairway, indicated the end of the Via Appia, the road that from Rome led to the East. Turning towards the sea we can see, in the distance, the modern Monumento al Marinaio (monument to sailors) erected in 1933, in the form of a rudder. Climbing the 'Scalinata Virgilio' we can reach the ancient columns and enter the historical town centre, rich with medieval remains.
