In this area you will find a collection of Etruscan monuments. The largest is a tuff hill excavated into the shape of a mound with a diameter of 28 meters. The tomb dates back to the sixth century BC and aound the perimeter can be seen remains of decorations.

On the side is a tomb with two rooms carved into the tuff and another on a small hill opposite. Going down to the valley are the remains of a large cylindrical altar with floral and animalistic decoration in low relief. The altar is surrounded by steps built into the tuff in the sixth century BC and is known as the oldest “cultural theatre” of Etruria.
