SAN SIMPLICIO NECROPOLIS
The archaeological area of San Simplicio Temple and Necropolis is an important museum of Olbia and holds part of the findings deriving from the archaeological excavation carried out during the redevelopment of the space in front of the church of San Simplicio.
The excavation, which has returned about 450 tombs of Roman age (200 BC to 300 AD), displays a stratification of phases of extra-urban worship and necropolis that runs through the first 2000 years of the city’s history, from its birth with the Phoenicians until the Middle Ages.
The archaeological site provides a tangible testimony of the ancient Olbia and goes together with the exhibition of findings of the Archaeological Museum.
Its uniqueness is related to the fact that the site is integrated in the layers of the modern town on the ancient residential area and its necropolis.
