WHERE TO FIND THEM AT POMPEII

SUGGESTIONS FOR VISITING POMPEII

 

Porta Nocera

The Porta Nocera is the gateway to three sets of plaster casts at Pompeii. Two are located inside the gate (the famous Garden of the Fugitives and the secret exhibit of Region I). But just outside the Porta Nocera, there is another, not well known, display of casts.

As you approach the Porta Nocera, along the street lined with tombs, go straight (passing by the Porta Nocera) and you will find this building on your left:

Inside the large building on the left (which is just behind the Porta Nocera), you will find a display of three plaster casts (behind a wire fence):

Another cast displayed near the Porta Nocera

The center building (with the high roof) contains a wire display case with another cast.

As is typical for Pompeii, no information about the casts is given, though it might be rightly assumed that they were found in the area of the Porta Nocera.
