A day at the Necropolis of Porto
An extraordinary but unfortunately little known archaeological site, the necropolis of Porto actually represents a unicum in the context of Roman burial grounds. Thanks to its exceptional conservation, due to the layers of sand that have protected the tombs for many centuries, it is possible to understand what an ancient Roman necropolis must have been like. The funerary monuments date from the beginning of the 2nd century AD. and the middle of the third century AD, but modest interventions are attested up to the fourth century AD.
