Photographer's Note

Settlement of Santa Cecilia - Bomarzo (VT)
The Bosco di Santa Cecilia is located on the south east side of Bomarzo; it is accessed via a path that is not well marked and starts near the municipal sports field.
Soon you go down to a large clearing on the edge of the rocky bastion, where there is a picnic area; next to a small anthropomorphic tomb begins a narrow path carved in stone, with steps shaped between two rocks.
The small via cava descends steeply between the rocky wall and large boulders, entering dense vegetation.
After a few hundred meters, on the right, you can see a large boulder dug to make a cave-house, equipped with two entrances, a rainwater drainage channel and an incision for the canopy, to protect the entrance. .
Continuing to descend on a terrace you will come across the remains of a large cemetery area with numerous uncovered peperino sarcophagi, it is an early Christian burial area, which the Bomarzesi call "cemetery of Chia".
