Bomarzo is located in Tuscia, an Etruscan territory that extends between Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria. The small village, which lies in the province of Viterbo, is at the center of the largest archaeological park in Europe, the area with the largest number of findings from Prehistoric to Modern times. Bomarzo dominates the volcanic gullies with its architectures built entirely of peperino, the local lava stone. A seductive village full of fantastic and historical narrations inhabited by artists, archaeologists, researchers, philosophers and mystics.
