Archaeology and history


The district Tiburtina is certainly one of the areas of Rome richest in archaeological heritage of various kinds that can be found along the streets and out of which the citizens live in absolute spontaneity. The archeological sites are certainly the most famous of Benedict XIV and Fontanile but many others are small sites scattered in the strangest places that deserve attention as the ancient ruins in Via G. Donati, via Ottoboni, the structures of the ancient Via Tiburtina and the Ruins of Casal Bertone.

With regard to the great works do not miss the Bridge Mammolo of Pius IX and the earlier Old Bridge Mammolo, the remains of Cecchina Bridge, the remains of the Medieval Bridge and the Roman bridge and the two major strong that the Fort Pietralata and Strong Tiburtino. Even the towers cannot be neglected because at Tiburtina buildings are known as the Tower of Rebibbia Ripa on the Medieval Tower and Tower Bridge Mammolo. Within the district is also a must visit the museum and the archaeological site of Plesistocenico located in Via Tiburtina.

There are also two mausoleums: one located at number 98 Via Casale and the White Torraccio of Cecchina.

The Church of the Immaculate Conception is located within a land donated to the parish of the same name and its construction dates back to early 900 when this area was reclaimed and built to promote the growth of the Roman as a territory rich in history and culture. At Tiburtina is also the eighteenth-century church Settecamini pretty small but the only place of worship.
