The necropolis dates from the third century BC and stretches along the ancient Via Amerina, where you can still see the remains of three bridges, one of which is still intact, dating from the third century BC.

The necropolis was the burial place for the city of Falerii Novi, a settlement built after the Roman conquest of the Faliscan territory. There are many burial styles, ‘dado’ – entrance is a cube opening, a portico, a columbario rooms with cells in the side to hold ashes, burial pits, and a arcosolia (recessed arches), and sacred emplacements, home to the impressive remains of several mausoleums.
