In the center of Vieste, a few steps from the Cathedral, the ancient oil mill in Via Celestino houses the Archaeological Civic Museum "Petrone" born in 1988 in the suggestive spaces of a natural cave. The spaces interspersed with arches house the various exhibition sections, with finds dating from prehistory to protohistory, from the classical age to the late antique age. In the museum itinerary you can admire the reconstruction of the interior of a mine dating back to the Neolithic period. Materials found during excavations in the territory are set up, including spearheads, arrows, stone inscriptions made in a period ranging from the fourth to the first century BC. The funeral objects made up of everyday objects and jewelry dating back to about 10,000 years ago are of value.
