Area archeologica di Venosa

The archaeological area contains the monumental remains of the Latin colony of Venusia (founded in 291 BC) from the Republican period to the Middle Ages. There are large public complexes, such as the thermal plant built in the first century. A.D. and renovated until the 3rd century d.C., the residential districts, including a domus with mosaics, a block bounded by two road axes. The majestic backdrop of the route is the Abbey of the Holy Trinity, fully restored making the various construction phases legible: from the imperial Roman domus to the early Christian episcopal complex, to the Benedictine abbey plant dating back to the Norman era. Among the subsequent interventions we note the new arrangement, in the sixteenth century, of the tomb of Robert the Guiscardo and his brothers. Both the park and the apse of the church leads to the Incompiuta, an ecclesial system built in the Norman era and never completed. The expansion of the park provides for integration with the adjacent archaeological areas where the amphitheater and the Christian and Jewish catacombs are visible.
