  • Vetulonia archaeological site

    Vetulonia archaeological site
    The district of Castiglione della Pescaia includes the town of Vetulonia that was one of the richest and most flourishing towns of northern Etruria mentioned in important ancient literary sources. Founded in the iron age (9th century B.C.) in the Bruna valley which was undoubtedly inhabited in prehistoric times, Vetulonia was originally composed of two distinct centers which were unified in the 7th century as can be deduced from the distribution of the sunken tombs dug into the surrounding hills not far from the town.
    The most typical feature of the town is that these sunken tombs are inserted into a great circle of stone, from which derives the name "tombe a circolo" ( circle tombs). The splendid and famous monumental tombs date to the 7th century and include the famous Tomba della Pietrera, which is visible along Via dei Sepolcri.
    It is open all day.
