DESCRIZIONE

The excavations in the Acropolis  in the area of Pian di Castello (part of the Archaeological Park “Enrico Fiumi”) have brought back to light interesting religious sites: starting from the 6th century BC, religious buildings and other structures, such as houses and warehouses, were built. The most substantial period of building was that of the Ellenistic period (3rd-2nd century BC), to which two temples (called A and B) belong, in addition to a cistern to collect rain water.

On the western side of the area, a building from the 2nd century BC with a richly coloured fresco in geometric patterns decorating a room of the building. Part of this find, unparalleled in the Etruscan area, is to be found in the Guarnacci Museum.
