Baratti and Populonia Archeological Park

Interesting
Facing the sea, the Etruscan necropolis dates back to the Iron Age (9C-8C BC) and is made up of sunken, ditch or chamber tombs and tumuli. The tomb with funerary beds ("letti funebri") and that of the pyriform aryballo form part of the tumulus tombs on a cylindrical platform. The tomb of the craters is also a high tumulus tomb. Two intact tumulus tombs have been found, the goldsmith and the fan tombs.
