The Etruscan Tomb Architecture

Monte Calvario's Cairn

The Tumulo di Monte Calvario is an Etruscan tomb. Probably it belonged to an important family, and we can imagine why the tomb is very big and it is located in the highest of the village.

The tomb is very large, it has a diameter of 50 metros and has four burial chambers placed at the cadinal points.

Now you can only admire the composition of the rooms,thanks to the lights but there is not furniture. The shape of To mba di Monte Calvario has inspired many architects and was taken as a model for large works.
