Roman villa delle grotte

Località le grotte

In Roman times the gulf of Portoferraio was the seat of two villas for the holidays of rich families of Rome. The remains of a second one are visible near the Martello tower, adjacent to the Archaeological Museum in Portoferraio. The Villa delle Grotte, which dominates the Gulf of Portoferraio, was built in the 1st century BC and abandoned already in the 2nd century AD From the 4th to the 6th century, now in ruins, it was again inhabited, probably by hermit monks. In the period of 1799-1802 Elba was the scene of confrontation between the French and the garrisons loyal to the Grand Duke of Tuscany helped by Elba insurgents and the British navy. In those difficult years the perimeter walls of the villa were demolished to install a battery of siege guns. The finds found during the excavations of the 60s are visible at the Archaeological Museum of Linguella, in Portoferraio.

Open all year upon reservation.
