SOVANA
   A naturally defended settlement of more than 13 hectares on a tuff outcrop with two key phases: a Final Bronze Age phase and an Archaic phase. The Archaic settlement showed prosperity through its tombs from the seventh to the sixth century. The tombs of this period are similar to those of neighboring Poggio Buco and Pitigliano. There are also elaborate rock-cut tombs from the Hellenistic period.
