Te name Aquilea goes back to Aquilis, the pre-Roman term for the river Natisone. Recent archaelogical finds point to the existance of protostoric settlements in the area (from the 13th to the 9th century BC).

Patriarchal Basilica

Dedicated to the Virgin Mary and to Saints Hermagoras and Fortunatus, it represents a historical continuation of the Theodorean episcopal centre above the structures of early Christian buildings.

The Roma she-wolf

On the top of the column stands the Roman she-wolf, the symbol of mighty Roman Empire.

    Yet another example of the power of the Romans. That cemetery is very interesting.

    Such an interesting place, so easy to reach and nevertheless so underrated.
