Opening Punic Necropolis of Solunto

We inform citizens that on Sunday 8 January it will be possible to visit the Punic necropolis located in via Consolare free of charge. It will be an important moment to make known, especially to the little ones, a place that contains our history. We await you at the meeting point of Villa Filangeri at 10:00 to then proceed with the visit.

The necropolis consists of chamber tombs with dromos (ie the access ladder), dug into the calcarenite bank. Some of the discovered tombs contained accompanying artefacts, including some valuable terracotta statuettes from the Hellenistic age, now exhibited in the Archaeological Museum of Palermo.
