It was discovered in the '70s with the start of mining: it is a multilayered archaeological site that has an extension greater than square. 8,000, lapped on the south and east sides by two sides of a travertine quarry was still active.

At the present state of research, attendance oldest archaeological site identified in the field walls seem to attest to the existence of a cult linked to the presence of thermo-mineral water which was to be attributed sacred value as well as healthy and therapeutic, as evidenced by the presence of a deposit votive identified in the Buca delle Fate, wooded area currently present in the north - west of the archaeological complex and likely location of the hot spring in ancient times. The removal of sediment silt - clay deposited at the center of the cone created by the water-mineral sorgentizio that flowed there, came to light some figurative bronzes, fragments of bracelets and bronze coins. Along the south side of the Buca delle Fate, excavations have unearthed a large thermal pool with large terraces perimeter blocks and blocks of travertine pavement made ​​from slabs of travertine regular overlapping.
