Catacombs of St. Callixtus

A visit to the Catacombs at Callisto was something recommended to us but to be honest this was not something that I would put on my bucket list.

The history of this place is pretty amazing. The Christians of Rome began to excavate their own community cemeteries (known today as ‘catacombs’) at the beginning of the second half of the 2nd century AD, when a few wealthy families, having been converted to the Christian faith, donated their lands to the Church (read more here).

No photography was allowed at this site but you can find some on Google.
