  • Following the signs for via cupa, is very easy to reach the pyramid, because the paths that lead you are different and indicated by many red marks on the trunks. I was in flip flops ... reasonable paths, except for a brief passage on the rock, so I proceeded with bare feet. overall we spent a few hours in the Woods, fascinated by peace, by the beauty and coolness of the place.

  • To reach it is not easy, we made use of the GPS and red marks drawn on the trees. The path is not easy but sometimes a little challenging but impressive. You walk into a magnificent forest between rocks and huge blocks of tufa in balance. The pyramid or rather truncated pyramid, remember those Maya. You are suddenly with all its mystery. From there you can make a path through the trees and leads to the necropolis of Santa Cecilia with the mysterious anthropomorphic tombs and cave dwellings, evidence of a pre etrusca: the Rinaldoniani. Nor on them nor on the ruins there are documented records nor archaeological studies. Have been found and cleaned of Bramble and overgrown by a group of local volunteers.

  • We made a trek of about three hours by dwelling on visits of various archaeological sites encountered on our trail, which are not well marked, and to get to the pyramid we also used the GPS to the dense vegetation. Get there cannot be taken for granted! Here, nature has provided the raw material in abundance with many huge boulders rained down from the sky with volcanic eruptions. The routes are winding, unmarked and sometimes overwhelmed by vegetation, dotted with ups and downs and really steep steps but ... the treasures they conceal all worthwhile efforts needed to achieve them. In the thick of the forest lies a huge Boulder Tuff used as a place of worship by the Etruscans. Is called "pyramid of Bomarzo" Although it is actually a truncated pyramid, in some ways similar to those of the Mayas; Some people call it also "sasso of the preacher", because it resembles a pulpit. The Boulder is statolavorato much to make a staircase that leads first to two altars and then the main altar at the top ... The area where the pyramid is rich in artifacts and settlements and we come across so well in cave dwellings dug inside huge rocks, altars and shrines the altar was discovered in 1991 and unfortunately there has not been a thorough study on this settlement that remains, in fact, left to itself is a hidden V Tuscia for certain esoteric, which is only now emerging from millennia of darkness and carelessness.
