Pavimentazione con mosaico romano

The maritime villa of Realmonte rises in the middle of the bay of Punta Grande, at the mouth of the Cottone stream, a few kilometers west of the commercial port of Agrigentum.


The villa, overlooking the sea, is organized in two main sectors: a residential one, with peristyle-garden, cubicula (bedrooms), tablinum (living room), triclinium (dining room), warehouses, and a spa, which includes a large dressing room (apodyterium), with walls covered in marble and mosaic floor in pink and black tiles with the representation of Scilla, a female sea monster holding a rudder, the calidarium, a small heated room and the frigidarium, with walls covered in marble and mosaic floor through which a large circular basin with marble-covered walls was accessed.
