You can admire the ruins of the ancient city of Trebula
Mutuesca which throughout history was mentioned by Strabo, Pliny the Elder and
Virgil. It is located about 1.5 km away from Monteleone Sabino. The remains of
the city date back to the 4th century D.C. but this does not exclude the
presence of a settlement dating back to the ancient times.
In 290 B.C.,
following the conquest of Sabina by the Romans, it undergoes a remarkable
development process due precisely to its romanisation, a development which
aimed especially at economic expansion of crops through the Ville Rusticae.
Trebula Mutuesca became municipality in the 1st century
D.C. Many works and buildings such as the thermal baths and the amphitheatre,
were built thanks to the rich Sabine family of Praesentes Brutti. Some of these
buildings are now visible, thanks to the archaeological excavations of 1958.
Trebula Mutuesca is 13 km away and can be reached by car in 15 minutes.
