Main sights

Conocchia monument
Saint Michael Church

The Conocchia is a funerary monument (c. 2nd century AD) that stands on the route of the Appian Way; the name derives from the shape that recalls the distaff (or molten), object used to spin. According to tradition there was also buried Flavia Domitilla, niece of Roman emperor Vespasian, during the Christian persecution by Domitian.
