Roman villa, Villa Romana del Tellaro, is located in eastern Sicily, south of the town of Noto. The villa was of an agricultural character, however, it is distinguished mainly by beautiful mosaic floors.

The mosaics show scenes from mythology (Hector, Odysseus and others), geometric elements and natural aspects. The villa is dated to the second half of the 4th century CE.

The building was restored and now it houses a museum.
