This is a very interesting site. It has a lot of the 4th century structure still standing. It sits in a park-like setting and really gives an idea of what life might have been like.

We stopped here while visiting the Alvito area. The Sao Cucufate ruins date from the middle of the 1st century. The villa served as a home to the Romans, a monastery, and a bishop's villa. Like modern homes, many renovations and additions happened, but over a much longer time frame. The nicest things to see are the frescoes from the late 16th or early 17th century.

The day we visited there was no one in sight except for the lady manning the entrance. She gave us a very good pamphlet with lots of information about these ruins. The entrance fee was 3 euros or 1.50 for seniors. It is amazing how well preserved these ruins of the roman villa are after all this time. This is quite a large complex with many sections of buildings still left standing. You are able to go inside a section of it and also climb a staircase to see the complex from a higher vantage point. It is really worth a visit.

Definitely worth a visit. We explored these ruins with a local guide. He told us quite a bit of history for the area and helped us envision what the area would have been like during Roman times. The site is well kept and has a small visitor's center. We enjoyed being able to explore at our own pace and not being rushed.

A small but well preserved ruins of a roman villa. The guide map given on entrance is very informative and you get a great idea of how \ Roman villa would have been laid out.The guide map explains each part of the villa and how it was changed in use durign its history. It was very peaceful and atmospheric.
