Villa of the Mysteries
Villa of the Mysteries
The Villa of the Mysteries is located just outside the gates of the city of Pompeii, and beyond its ancient necropolis. It is a large Roman villa which overlooked the sea. Inside are some of the most famous frescoes from the ancient world.

Heavily debated and discussed ever since the day they were uncovered.  Its walls are decorated with mysterious scenes, including gods and monsters, and future architecture that would not be seen for hundreds of years.

We will go through objects found inside the house, the remains of bodies from the eruption, an area for roman wine making, and try to unveil the secrets of it’s mysterious frieze, by searching for parallels to its imagery across the Roman world.
