Directions to Museo Archeologico di Giardini-Naxos
Located almost at the end of the peninsula of 'Schisò', leaning against the remains of the small fortress of the XVII-XVIII centuries, the museum collects mainly archaeological finds unearthed in recent excavations conducted in the area of the ancient colony. On display are especially prehistoric finds of the Neolithic period, and finds of the city-life, from the archaic Greek to the late Roman and Byzantine periods.
Among the most important and precious are fragmentary figurines depicting an enthroned goddess, some archaic female busts, a female figure bearing in her right hand a dove, elements of architectural decoration, vases and fragments of vessels and classical objects of distinctly domestic use, such as weights, frames and lamps, funerary objects from the necropolis, and bronze helmets.
