Useful Info

Originally private cemeteries, the catacombs quickly became places of devotion. They were all built on more or less the same pattern, with chambers radiating from the hypogeum or tomb of a rich Roman family which had adopted Christianity. Converts did not come here to escape persecutions, but to honour the memory of the dead. As Christianity spread and the number of its followers increased, the catacombs were gradually forgotten and abandoned.

Those of St Calixtus and Domitilla are some distance off the Via Appia. The first owes its name to Pope Calixtus (217-222). It consists of four storeys, and the galleries extend for a considerable distance.

The Catacombs of Domitilla are even larger, and contain a series of frescos from the third and fourth centuries. Further on, the Via Appia descends through a valley, passing further catacombs which include the tomb of St Sebastian, martyred under Diocletian (284-305). In the subterranean chambers are graffiti of incalculable historical value invoking St Peter and St Paul, as well as paintings and stucco work.
