What to see in Grotte di Castro, Viterbo, Lazio


Housed in the palazzo designed by Vignola in the second half of the 16th century, the archaeological museum contains funerary objects from the Etruscan necropolises scattered throughout the area: Vigna la Piazza, Pianezze and Centocamere. The first floor illustrates daily life through an in-depth study of the customs and traditions of the Etruscan people. On the ground floor the visitor enters the world of the afterlife: through the full-scale reproduction of a chamber tomb and the presence of a real monolithic tufa sarcophagus, an attempt has been made to help the visitor understand the funerary rituals attested at Grotte di Castro.
