Tremona Archaeological Park

Archaeological park, life in Middle Ages

On the southern slope of Monte San Giorgio there is the village of Tremona. On the hill behind, covered by woods, archaeologists have unearthed an entire medieval village.

A visit to Tremona-Castello archaeological Park offers a real insight into how people lived during the times when the medieval village was inhabiteted. Indeed, archaeological excavations taking place annually since 2000 have unearthed thousands of artefacts of daily life.
