This locality is known for archaeological excavations that have unearthed ancient Roman houses, baths and a theater.

In front of the ruins there is a gully consisting of marl and red clay, in which marcasite and radiating baryte can be found simply by digging with a shovel or a pick axe.

Finds of pyrite crystals near the ruins of the Roman town of Velleia have been reported by Jervis (1874).
