Archaeological Area

Parco Archeologico Vallata del San Pasquale Archeoderi

Scido, (Reggio Calabria)

Opened in 2010, the Park is located in Bova Marina, around the synagogue discovered in the eighties in the district from which it takes its name "Deri". It is in an archaeological site of the most important in the Mediterranean: the synagogue dates from the fourth century AC, and is therefore the oldest in the West after that of Ostia Antica. Initially identified as a Roman villa, it was then found to nature thanks to a mosaic depicting the most important Jewish symbols: a menorah (seven-branched candelabrum), the shoffar (ram's horn), cedar, palm branch and Solomon's knot.
