San Basilio Cultural Tourist Centre

The San Basilio Cultural Tourist Centre is a small museum that exhibits some of the finds recovered during the different excavation campaigns.

In the first section of the main room, you can see a number of panels showing the main geomorphologic changes that affected the area throughout the centuries.
The main section hosts five showcases that contain a host of Pre-Roman and Roman finds, as well as two showcases with numismatic material.

The cavaedium exhibits a number of stone finds dating back to the Roman age, the most important of which is the inner case of a large marble sarcophagus.

Next, you will visit the excavation site. The recent prosecution of the archaeological research on the Southern side of the Forzello estate led to the discovery of a wide Paleochristian architectural complex, increasing the historical and archaeological importance of this area.

Finally, you will visit the Romanesque parish church of San Basilio, which was built on an ancient sand dune.

The present church is the result of three separate building phases, the earliest of which dates back to the Early Middle Ages. A new phase took place between the 9th and the 12th centuries AC, while the most recent one dates back to the 18th century AC. In this latter period, the church was also used as a burial place for prelates and notables.
