Known as the “city of the dead”, it is an archaeological area located at the foot of the Orvieto cliff. The site holds over 70 Etruscan tombs distributed according to the plan of a city with streets that cross at right angles. An inscription on the architrave still legible on some tombs recalls the name of the family to which it belongs. The necropolis has returned numerous finds that are visible in the museums of Orvieto.
