Vitorchiano. The area of Ferentiensis way

In an area east of Vitorchiano at the foot of the Cimini Mountains, crossed by the Via Ferentiensis, there are many necropolises dating back to the Etruscan and Roman periods.

In this area there is a large number of carved boulders that must have been funerary stones, such as the boulder called 'the preacher's stone', and altars.

Also visible is a Roman chamber tomb with a painted pediment and numerous Roman epigraphs such as that of the magistrate Caius Anicius who had been a quadrunviro from the nearby city of Statonia.
