  • By the time I had heard about this site in Bomarzo, intrigued I attended a visit organized by an Association of trekking, the site is not protected by the establishment is maintained in order by some inhabitants volunteers of bomarzo, which, by the way they made the discovery. Still is a source of study by archaeologists who failed to put the time in which it was built, it is believed at the time preetrusca. These places are very suggestive, fascinating particulars.

  • I won't write a real review for this archaeological site definitely unique. I recommend you go there and let yourself be carried away by the place and history.

  • A visit to the Etruscan Pyramid, combined with the visit the necropolis of Santa Cecilia and Ditch falls Castle (or grinding wheel Falls) is a beautiful route, full of charm, history and nature. The pyramid is impressive, a huge Boulder carved and from where you can enjoy amazing views across the Valley. The necropolis of Santa Cecilia is perhaps the place of any route that has fascinated me more: completely enveloped by woods, in silence, with structures and tombs covered with MOSS, is truly an enchanting place. The falls are located at the entrance of the Valley, a short distance from Terni, Viterbo, are interesting because the water flows in different Rivulets between hard rock and polished, and inserted in a landscape fine: I had the feeling that the water was murky and not very clean. The route truly deserves, but it is absurd to almost completely missing the signs, especially to get the pyramid. The necropolis of Santa Cecilia and the route to the Chia Tower and the falls is indicated by a few signs along the way. To get there you park at the sports field of Bomarzo, coming from Terni, Viterbo, turn right at the beginning of the village. At the sports field there is a building in ruins on which lists the path to the necropolis of Santa Cecilia and waterfalls. Take the trail to the left of the sports field, which goes slightly downhill for about 200 meters until you come to a clear overview on the Valley with a wooden table. The trail to the necropolis of Santa Cecilia falls on rock cut directly below the Glade while to take the path to the Torre di Chia turn right: both directions are indicated by signs clearly visible. To reach the pyramid instead there are signs and we must take the path that compared to clearing, go left. Continue along the footpath along the margin of the valley below, in short you reach a road and then turn right. Along the little road to the left we find the cultivated fields in part olive grove and initially fenced with electrified fence, while on the right side there is the edge overlooking the Valley, with some scenic spots. Continue straight on for at least 10-15 minutes walk and we enter in oak forest. You get to a crossroad between roads where it would be appropriate to put a big sign (see picture), and at that point you should take right fork marked by a white and Red stain on the trunk of an oak tree: the trail goes to the edge of the Valley and meets for a tomb with horse Head plaque. We descend to a lookout with a particular holestones, then that is a cave dwelling and the path goes downhill over rocks and gets quite steep. Then the trail turns to the left and after about 100 meters you will arrive at the pyramid. The path is traced and visible in winter thanks to the white and Red stains on the trees, but in summer the vegetation could make less visible trail, and since this is a significant archaeological site, it is critical that you have not already done so to place signs more evident, as has already been done to the necropolis of Santa Cecilia. It also completely lacks the posters with information on the site, that really worth a visit.
