The site includes two main archaeological areas: Timpone della Motta, located 280 meters above sea level and the area Macchiabate, along the Raganello river. At Timpone re  located a series of sacred buildings, while, at the bottom, the necropolis. Among the plateaus leveled artificially it was identified a settlement of the Iron Age made up of huts, some of which are dug in recent years. The Sanctuary of the Timpone della Motta is one of the most interesting sites in the territory of the Pollino National Park: the archaic temple found, in fact, is the first example of a place of worship of indigenous people until Greek age, when it was dedicated to the Goddess Athena.
