If you are passing worth a stop. Hardly an impressive structure. A few foundations and some small tiled floors. The ones that survive are good. As I said worth a stop for 3 euro if you are passing.

A fascinating site, showing a small section of a large villa, built in the 1st century (AD). The majority of the villa remains underneath the church and village, but what's available to see includes the frigidarium (cold bath) with it's remarkable mosaics of fish and...More
