Villa del Casale

Just three kilometers from the center, taking the main road that leads from Piazza Armerina to Barrafranca, is the most extraordinary example of Roman architecture: the Villa Romana del Casale and its splendid mosaics.

A monument for which the city has earned archaeological fame all over the world and constitutes a unique testimony to the tastes and customs of the Roman period.

The Villa dates back to the fourth century and is divided into three large salt complexes, patios, spas and peristyle.

The most important element of the complex is undoubtedly constituted by the floor mosaics of a magnitude (about 3,500 square meters) and a variety to have no equal in the world.

Of particular interest are the mosaics depicting the four seasons, the Circus Maximus, the Labours of Hercules, and the famous Girls in Bikini; but also other scenes such as hunting and fishing reach moments of sublime mosaic art.
