The Tullian Archaeological Complex, located between Cantalupo in Sabina and Selci, is situated within a private villa, about 2 kilometers from the center. This site is flanked by the remains of a “villa rustica” from the Hadrianic period, commonly believed to have belonged to Marcus Tullius Cicero, as the name suggests.
The villa extended over an area of two hectares on the entire Tullian hill and included a thermal area. Another dwelling called the “House of the Cisterns” or the “Baths” has been identified in this area, where it is still possible to admire the Roman well made of opus reticulatum.
The Tullian Archaeological Complex of Cantalupo thus represents a fascinating combination of a wealthy landowner’s residence, the “villa rustica” associated with Marcus Tullius Cicero, and the presence of thermal facilities, as evidenced by the “House of Cisterns” and the striking Roman well. This adds additional layers of complexity and cultural-historical interest to the site, helping to preserve its rich legacy of the past.
