Vernazza Palace – The temple of the goddess Isis

0
The most curious aspect of the Vernazza palace is the treasure that has been hidden from the eyes of Lecce for centuries, and which today can be admired through some grates and a staircase leading to an underground level. It is a pagan temple dedicated to the goddess Isis. Although the cult of the goddess is typically associated with Egyptian culture, it was also imported to Italy after Rome's conquest of the land of the Pharaohs. The Isis cult was initially frowned upon by the Romans, but it spread more quickly and deeply than cults associated with other deities such as Dionysus and Bacchus.
