Historical notes

In Mirabella you can visit the archaeological site of the ancient town of Aeclanum, one of the most important centre of the Samnites. Archaeological evidence in Mirabella was first discovered in the fifties.

Excavation works have brought to light significant archaeological finds of the Roman Empire: the macellum which is an ancient Roman indoor market building that sold mostly provisions (especially fruits and vegetables), remains of buildings such as bath Houses, a paleochristian Basilica of the age of Emperor Justinian the Great and at last a necropolis that hosts several monuments and funerary enclosures.

The most remarkable monuments of the archaeological site are undoubtedly the bath Houses. The Baths were richly decorated with marble friezes and many statues that are now in the Museum of Avellino.
