TIGELLIO VILLA

Where is it : Via Giovanni Carbonazzi,7
Accessible Open

In the early 1900s, excavation works discovered remains from the ancient roman Cagliari.

These ruins were believed to belong to the villa of one Tigellio.

Tigellio was a poet and musician from Cagliari who lived during the roman era.

It actually was not a villa, but a part of the city of Cagliari from the roman era.

Today it is possible to admire the ruins of three adjacent houses.

A narrow street separates these houses from the thermal baths.

The excavation brought to light mosaics and paintings on the walls of the houses.

For that reason, the houses are called: House of the stuccos and House of the painted tablinum.
