The Tauriani archaeological park “Antonio De Salvo”

The Tauriani archaeological park “Antonio De Salvo” covers three of the estimated ten hectares of the ancient Roman city. It occupies the central area of a flatland dominating the Tyrrhenian coast between Capo Vaticano, the Strait of Messina and the plain of the Petrace river (the ancient Métauros). The park is located a few kilometers far from the urban center of Palmi. Calabria General Direction for the Cultural Heritage and Reggio Calabria Province financed the works and the park was opened in September 17th, 2011. Investigations have been carried out since 1995 by the General Direction for the Archaeological Heritage. Remains of Bronze age huts of 4000 years ago were brought to light, together with the urban structures of the Bruttii and Roman Cities (4th B.C. – 5th A.D.) with their public, sacred and private buildings as the House of the Mosaic, the Urban Sanctuary and the recently discovered Building for Performances.
