Villa Rustica

The remains of the ancient Villa Rustica can be found in Cisterna Bay, around 1 km south of the Veštar Bay. Many fragments of ancient ceramics are spread across the area, especially along the shore (amforae, siphons, oil lamps…), while the remains of ancient walls disappearing into the ground in the coastal belt can be seen in several places along the shore.
In the ancient times, there was an outhouse in the area surrounding the villa, that was used for processing of olives and grapes grown on the fertile plains of the hinterland. In 1991, an ancient grave dating back to the 2nd – 4th century was found right on the shore.
