The archaeological park currently covers an area of about 10 hectares, in the area where the ancient settlement once stood. Designed according to a non-traditional approach that envisages its progressive, future expansion over the entire ancient urban area (about 85 hectares), it is proposed as a center of multiple activities and interests.
The vast area not explored, destined to green, has the typical function of a park-garden. Here you can spend your free time, in a natural setting recovered for enjoyment. The archaeological part that can be visited, on the other hand, covers an area of about 500 square meters. The excavations have brought to light an area of the city that is identified, for the Roman period, with the center of Picentia, born in 268 BC
It is visible part of a wide road axis (9.00 m wide) oriented in east-west direction, to which at least two perpendicular roads of smaller width are connected. The latter define two blocks (insulae) of habitation, in which construction phases have been identified, dating back to the III century. B.C. and the V-VI century A.D..
Period that marks the definitive abandonment of the city. However, the relative remains of the pre-Roman settlement on whose remains Picentia was built are very limited: these are some structures dating back to the 4th century. BC, found below one of the insulae.
