villa, located in Ossaia-La Tufa, is an outstanding
example of a late Republican-Imperial villa covering
an overall area of over 3200 sq.feet and divided into
three different areas separated by an intermediate terrace.
The complex was inhabited in three different successive
stages. The first stage may be dated back to between
50 B.C. and the first half of the 1st century A.C. The
second building stage may be dated back to between 80-100
A.C and the 3rd century A.C. whereas the third stage
documents a resumption of building activities between
the age of the Tetrarchy and the Constantinian period
and the first half of the 5th century A.C.
