Archaeological Museum of Francavilla di Sicilia
The Archaeological Museum of Francavilla di Sicilia , M.A. FRA., Occupies some rooms of the historic Palazzo Cagnone. In the museum it is possible to enjoy a video introducing the area and to visit the exhibition in the three rooms on the first floor. The first room is dedicated to the protohistoric period, to the de Siculi settlement dating back to the end of the Bronze Age. The second room is dedicated to the Greek city, founded by the Calcidesi of Naxos. The numerous exhibits on display tell of how daily life took place at that time. The third room is dedicated to the suburban sanctuary in via Don Nino Russott of the goddess Demeter and her daughter Persephone, one of the most important sacred complexes in Greek Sicily, due to the wealth of votive deposits. In this room are also exhibited the finds from the necropolis of the fifth century BC. The tour ends with the immersive room that offers a virtual journey back in time to discover the Greek Francavilla.
