  • The grave of Ildebranda was chosen to commemorate Ildebrando da Sovana, who became Pope in 1073 with the name Gregory VII. The Tomb dates back to the end of the 3rd century BC and is the most important part of the whole necropolis. It is a monumental work, made when chipping into an entire Tuff Hill, probably the only example of a tomb in Etruscan Temple, and one of the greatest architectural works Etruscan cave. A podium place at the top, reached by two stairways and consisted of twelve columns with capitals decorated by the faces of various deities. The latter in turn decorated with Griffins and vegetal elements partially visible. In the lower part of the tomb is a long corridor that leads into the burial chamber. Worth the money to go and see
