Description

The noble domus.

This was a large Roman house belonging to an important family. Together with the house, remains related to the cult of Mitra were found and this is where its name comes from.

The house consists of three peristyles or courtyards with columns around which the residence is organised. The rooms are decorated with high quality mosaics and mural paintings. The most important mosaic is the Cosmic one which represents Heaven, Earth and the sea. The house in general is extraordinarily beautiful.
