  • Catacombs of San Senator

Energitismo Insight

The catacombs have been created within an existing quarry pozzolan and have been used as a cemetery from the late third century until around the VI century AD. The fame of these catacombs was due to the presence of the bodies of San Senator, Santa Perpetua and a large number of other martyrs. You can admire frescoes such as "Christ seated on a throne surrounded by four Alban martyrs" (fifth century). The catacombs are located under the Church of Santa Maria della Stella.
