Useful Info

The catacombs, of which there are 67 known ones in Rome, are underground cemeteries, the Christian burial grounds of the first four centuries. Sanctuaries were later built near the crypts of the martyrs. Despite the Roman authorities’ disapproval of the early Christians, their respect for the dead was too great to allow the catacombs to be damaged, and much has survived.

Many galleries were rediscovered in the 19th century having been abandoned or forgotten, and in the 1840s Pope Gregory XVI took measures to preserve this evidence of early Christian history. The catacombs are important for their inscriptions, and they contain some of the earliest surviving examples of Christian art.
