This is one of the most important areas of local historical and tourist interest of the Tyrrhenian coast. It occupies the area of the ancient site of Pyrgi, the Etruscan harbour town in following the ancient Caere (Cerveteri). In the centuries the first establishment was modified until it assumed the actual aspect that represents a real mediaeval village.The village includes a small medieval burgh with a 9th century castle facing the sea and built right on top the Etruscan port of Pyrgi. The Pyrgi Tablets were found here in 1964. The Castle also hosts a Civic Museum that deals entirely with the sea and the ancient ways of navigating, and shows through original findings and reconstructed models, different aspects of the way of life of these people "on the sea and for the sea".
