The sanctuary stands on the hill of Colle Rimontato, about 1.5 miles to the northeast ​​of S. Giovanni in Galdo.
The sacred area is characterised by the presence of an almost square temple with two porticoes on the sides and a rectangular enclosure. The presence and the practices of worshippers are attested by the finds of votive materials which date from the end of the 2nd century to the beginning of the 3rd century B.C., prior to the monumentalising of the site at the end of 2nd-beginning of the first century B.C. (a process which continued until the 3rd century A.D. when the site was permanently abandoned).
