Bolca Fossil fish skeleton


Fossil site

Inconspicuously situated but of historical significance is the small village of Bolca. It gained world fame on account of the many fossils that can be found in the surrounding limestone mountains. Several metres thick, the limestone layers hide huge quantities of fossil – some of them are preserved so well that scientists could determine organs and skin colour of the fish and marine creatures that lived 50 million years ago!

You can see many of the fascinating exhibits in the Museo dei fossils (fossils museum) in the city. A special aquarium featuring the fossils’ descendants provides visitors with interesting insights. Those who are interested can also go down to the fossil site on a special trail and walk along the million-year-old stone tombs. The museum is closed on Mondays.
