Rock Tombs



The rock tombs of Roccapalumba can be traced back to late antiquity. All over the area several settlements are to be found with annexed necropolis, made up of tombstones with arcosolium or grottoes dug out of isolated rocky outcrops. The graffiti inside them are of considerable anthropological interest. This type of tomb, however, could well be older than thought and date back to prehistoric times; its use however continued until the early Christian and Byzantine period.
