Situated less than a kilometre from the town centre along the road leading to Cetona, the archaeological site includes the Etruscan tomb of Sarteano. It was investigated the first time in 1954 by Guglielmo Maetzke who discovered two underground structures, one of which was very large, with a corridor leading to the tombs. Since 2000, there have been numerous excavations undertaken by the Civic Archaeological Museum of Sarteano and by the Etruria Archaeological Group which have brought to light numerous archaeological finds.
