The Baths Ficoncella – thermal baths in Civitavecchia
The town takes its name from a wild fig tree, which still exists, situated on top of a panoramic hill.
Source close to the ancient Baths of Ficoncella, the Etruscans built a city (Aquae Tauri), which no longer exists, halfway between the old Civitavecchia and Tarquinia. Site civic today remain few remnants, the hot spring, known and exploited at the time of the Etruscans, however, is incredibly still the same.
