Villa of Mosaics in Spello
The Villa of Mosaics in Spello, of which almost 500 square metres have been uncovered, is one of the most important archaeological discoveries made in recent years in Umbria.
It offers ten rooms with beautiful mosaic floors that have extraordinary polychrome decorations, such as geometrical elements, human figures, wild and fantastic animals.
The Villa of Mosaics in Spello was discovered in July 2005, just outside Spello’s walls, in the area of St. Anna, during the works for the construction of a public car park.
Remains of an ancient mosaic were found, which led to excavations and careful restoration, under the scientific direction of the then Archaeological Heritage Office of Umbria, which brought to light a villa of large dimensions.
