Catacombs

Look for the festonned pistachio tree, and there you will find the amazing sight of the catacombs, older than the roman walls! You can see they have had different uses over the years and the frescoes and graffiti really tell a tale.

My wife and I were intrigued by a tree wiht lots of rags tied to it and investigated. Still no idea what that's about but the catacombs there were amazing. Really interesting and the underground chapels have great frescoes. The history here is almost palpable! Don't forget a torch to see things best we were lucky to borrow a fellow english couple's!

The Catacombs of St. Callixtus

posted by awesme on 3 July 2009 at 16:20

Visiting the Roman catacombs is essential for understanding early Christianity, particularly in its relationship to the empire. Ten martyrs, 16 popes and numerous early Christians are buried here. among them St. Celelia is the patron saint of music, so her tomb is particularly popular. The catacombs remain official cemeteries of the Church. Worship spaces include two small basillicas and three apses.

Catacombe di San Gennaro

posted by DVC_Chris on 16 May 2009 at 04:21

One of the most memorable sites in all of Naples is the Catacombe di San Gennaro, which lies beneath the San Gennaro church. It was amazing seeing these ancient burial sites that contain so much history. To think that these vast catacombs were also widened and the alcoves were carved by hand just added to the whole experience.
