Cupra Marittima - Archaelogical Park


Cupra Marittima was already popular during the lower and middle Paleolithic near the Menocchia and Aso rivers. In the Picen age, the town was important for the sancturary dedicated to the Goddess Cupra; and it was a highly populated town as shown by the amount of necropolis dating back to the VI century B.C.. After the Piceno area was conquered by the Romans in 268 A.D., the territory was part of the ager publicus. The area of the park is situated north of the town which stretches over a 32 hectares surface; in this area there are important evidence of the Roman urban structure of Cupra Marittima. Outside the town, the remains of a villa are clearly visible, in particular a precious nymphaeum with a central pond, walls decorated with niches and frescoes, and a central exedra. The forum area is located in an upland in the “Civita” area where digs discovered the remains of a rectangular-plan temple and two arches. The Archaelogical Museum of Cupra Marittima also worth a visit.
