Great Tomb
The rocky necropolis of Castel d’Asso
The Great Tomb, also known as the Queen's Tomb, is a fake dice, datable between the middle of the III and the middle of the II century BC, it is so called for its large proportions; it is famous for its three exceptional access doors; shows an externally sculpted tiled roof on the imposing compartment under the faηade, which had the particularity of being tripartite and therefore having three access doors. On either side, steps led to the upper terrace.
The large lower chamber is accessed via an exceptionally long dromos, well over 20 meters high, and 10 meters high. Originally, at least 40 sarcophagi were to be found in the burial, today 14 remain inside, unfortunately uprooted and fragmented by vandalism. and by grave robbers. SEE WS
