  • Large archeological park, very interesting and intended for enlargement (much remains to be excavated). Black and white and polychrome mosaics were to adorn the imposing Roman villa. Too bad the invasive proximity a very busy road. Very competent who escorted us to visit

  • A Roman villa, whose ruins are located in contrada palaces. The villa was discovered in 1963. The villa rose probably on the ancient road from Locri Epizefiri and Rhegion (Reggio Calabria). Were put back into light a large private spa complex environments, accessible by a portico. richly decorated with mosaics, including that figuratively of the frigidarium ("sala delle Nereidi"), dated to the 3rd century, depicting in large white and green tiles a thiasos marino with four female figures riding a lion, a bull, a horse and a tiger ending with a fish tail. The Hall has an octagonal plan with apses on four sides and has two basins for cold water. The calidarium with hypocaust heating system and clay tubes on the walls, has an octagonal plan and mosaic floor into smaller tiles and had to be covered by a vault. The complex also includes a rectangular room paved in coloured marble slabs (opus sectile). Across the road is the residential part of the villa, with articulated around a large courtyard. There are mosaic floors ("sala delle quattro stagioni, apsidal room").

  • Find a Roman villa this size where you least expect (grecanica area of Calabria) is undoubtedly a big surprise. And so is why it deserves a better advertising. Admission is 3 euros and it would deserve probably more, though, and here is justified only three bullets that cheque, there was some kind of indication and explanation. No sign that demonstrates the various functions of the various Spa facilities, recognizable however at all, and, across the street, reached by an underpass from the looks abandoned, of what, presumably, was the villa itself. Sold out, according to the clerk at the box office, even the brochures. Interesting mosaics recognizable on the floor of some thermal suites. Dirty and unsafe wooden catwalks that help overcome some, but not all, of the unevenness of the terrain. In short, an interesting site that could and should be much better exploited.
