Porto Cesareo

Some History

Porto Cesareo or Cesarea romana rises in front of the ancient Sasina, although in the territory there are evidences of human settlements dating back to the 18th and 17th centuries BC in loc. Scala di Furno.
This is attested by the presence in the area of the rests of a village which was probably used as emporium by sailors coming from Greece: here, besides an area dedicated to the goddess Thana, small votive statues and pieces of pottery have been found.
