Description

Old Mountain (Are you joking?)

Town center of the VII - VI century. to. C. indigenous Hellenized. Inhabited center of medieval age (up to the first half of the XNUMXth century) (Source: Guidelines of the regional landscape plan)

The relief is a natural stronghold, bordered by high walls and few entrances. The hill is scattered with archaeological remains, not yet adequately investigated, which suggest a very long continuity of life, from the Neolithic to the Middle Ages.
