Visit this maze of quarries and tunnels that are ancient underground cemeteries that also provided refuge to the Christian communities during the Roman persecution.

The quiet tunnels will come to life as your guide tells you the stories and legends of early Christianity during the days of Roman persecution. Stepping into this mystical maze you will see some of the most important Christian frescoes in the world - such as the earliest depiction of the Virgin Mary and the oldest image of the Three Wise Men.
