Tuvixeddu Necropolis (Necropoli di Tuvixeddu)

  Via Falzarego     more than a year ago
The Tuvixeddu Necropolis is a Punic burial ground, one of the largest in the Mediterranean, located on a hill inside the city. Between the 6th and 3rd centuries BC the Carthaginians chose this hill to bury their dead. Tuvixeddu means "The Hill of Small Holes", from the Sardinian tuvu for "cavity", due to the presence of the numerous tombs carved into the limestone. Many of the burial chambers were beautifully decorated and contained amphorae and ampoules. On the slopes of the Tuvixeddu Hill there is also a Roman necropolis with monumental tombs reserved for illustrious figures of the times.
