Overview

This archaeological park was created in the second half of the 19th Century when a series of excavations uncovered various sepulchers and tombs along Via Latina. The tombs are very well-preserved. The "Barberini" sepulcher is simple but elegant and is where Barberini sarcophagus was discovered, now on display in the Vatican Museums. In the second tomb, there is a white, stucco-covered interior, with depictions of an underwater world with Britons, Nereid and dancing semi-gods. Another tomb has many bright colors and elaborate pictures of mythological episodes featuring Apollo, Diana, Paris and Hercules.
