It appears visible the foundations of two buildings identified as temples A and B separated by a road intertemplare that surrounds and defines in part the place of worship.

Remains of houses of the Hellenistic period, a complex system of tanks, including the so-called swimming pools, streets and medieval towers of foundations resting on the oldest, the endless landscape that runs from the Apennines to the Tirreno Sea makes this place one of the most interesting and enjoyable city​​.

In 1987 it resumed the excavation of the Acropolis under the direction of Prof. Volterra Marisa Bonamici that, together with the excavation of Doro Levi (1926) and Mauro Cristofani (1967-1972) have greatly enriched the stratigraphic sequence and structural site.
