Not far from Grumento Nova there is the ‘Parco Archeologico di Grumentum’ (Grumentum Archaeological Park). The ruins of the old town are on a small hill between the Sciaura Stream and the Agri River.
The structure of this town was very simple, with three main streets and several lanes that crossed them. The town was surrounded by 3-km long walls, with six entrances.
Of the ruins of the Roman Grumentum three monumental complexes remain.
The first one is composed of a theatre of the Augustan Age, two small temples of the Imperial Age and a patrician ‘domus’, the House with the Mosaics.
The second corresponds to the old Forum. On the Northern side there is the ‘Capitolium’ and on the Southern there is the ‘Cesareo’. On the Western side some other buildings used to be and the rest of the perimeter was surrounded by arcades.
The third is formed by the ruins of the amphitheatre, built in the I century and changed during the Imperial Age.
