Mercatale Valdarno

Archeological site

These archeological findings were discovered near the village of Mercatale, along the provincial road 16, where there are the crossroads to Galatrona. The first discovery took place when the road was being built, in 1971, when a lot of fragments of tiles and pieces of pottery emerged – among these there were sigillata aretina. Moreover, during the construction of the present carpenter’s shop -which is near to the previous discovery site- ruins of walls in opus cementicium and a lot of rounded-shape bricks were discovered. At the moment, there is no archeological investigation of the area and no one is carrying out building relieves.

The Virtual Museum of Valdambra is a project of the Municipality of Bucine and the Valdambra Association.
