Catacombe S. Domitilla

Via delle Sette Chiese, 282 - 00147 Roma - info@domitilla.info


he catacomb of Domitilla with its 15 km of subterranean galleries is not only the largest catacomb of Rome, it also provides an extensive insight into all phases and phenomena of an Early-Christian necropolis. A subterranean basilica was the centre of a pilgrimage sanctuary with the graves of the martyrs Nereus and Achilleus up until the Middle Ages. With about 80 painted tombs, the Domitilla-catacomb also comprises one of the largest inventories of catacomb painting. - START-Project

The catacombs are a perennial school of faith, hope and charity.

Qui la Chiesa  fu spoglia, fu povera, fu umile, fu pia, fu oppressa, fu eroica.

arge, impressive, the best preserved and one of the most extensive, the Domitilla Catacombs are unique in that they are the only ones still containing bones. Included in their passages are a 2nd-century fresco of the Last Supper and other valuable artifacts. They are the only catacombs that have a subterranean basilica. In the beginning of 2009, at the request of the Vatican, Divine Word Missionaries assumed responsibility as administrator of St. Domitilla Catacombs. - cf. Wikipedia
