The Via Francigena path from Capranica to Monterosi passes through Sutri, an ancient Etruscan village.  On the way into town, several Etruscan tombs greet the pilgrims.

S. Maria del Prato

Several Etruscan tombs created this worshiping site.  Once a gathering place for the followers of Mithra, the tombs eventually became a Christian church.
