A most unusual place, with layered history (not a uphemism). The place has 3 parts. First comes a museum with artefacts from the neolithic period and through ensuing centuries. Second is what remains of a Roman-era villa--an aristocratic Roman family was sent there to settle the area. The place lies in ruins, but what ruins! There are beautiful mosaics (too bad the outsdie mosaic is covered in such a manner that it is quite hard to photograph). The mosaic inside the museum is very large too, and gorgeous. Another nice thing about the inside mosaic is that it is really the floor of the villa's largest room. A glass wall opens from the inside floor mosaic to the outside ruins. The perspective is thus complete, with one room inside and all the adjacent rooms outside.Third comes the old church built in the roman style. The builders used stones from the villa to build the church, and the monks burried their deads digging holes around the church, some of which ended in the middle of the nice inside mosaic floor and other in the middle of the ruins outside the covered room/museum.
The place is not huge, but it is a very nice place to stop on the way to somewhere else in the region, a superb driving break.
