Carcer Tullianum

The prison of the enemies of the roman empire, tell us a long history of three centuries returned to light after recent archeological excavations. It is located below the Church of St. Joseph of the Carpenters - sixteenth century - and overlooks the Roman Forum, one of the most impressive views of the city. The complex is composed of two distinct nuclei: the Carcer, the upper location, which dates back to the period of Anco Marzio (640-616 BC) and the Tullianum, the lower setting, the era of Servio Tullio (578-534 BC). The first testimonials of the place date back to the ninth century BC.
