The Torre Frumentaria now houses the the Civil and Archaeological Museum with statues, epigraphs and ancient relics of the Roman era.  Adjacent is the modern Town Hall which also has some interesting artefacts on display.  From here there is a beautiful view overlooking the lower half of Terracina and the mountainous headland of San Felice Circeo.

To the right of the Duomo is the noteworthy 14th century Gothic Palazzo Venditti. Nearby is the ancient Roman Forum Emiliano, of the Republican era, and original sections of the ancient Via Appia and an ancient archway - the Arco Onorario (1 BC).
