Vigna Randanini catacombs, Roma

TheAuthor / Archeology, Places, Roma / / 0 Comments / Like this

Behind a small, anonymous iron door along via Appia Pignatelli there is a very special place, a small garden leading to the catacombs called Catacombe di Vigna Randanini

Discovered in 1859, these catacombs reused a previous pagan building, with many later additions.

The catacombs have a system of galleries and tunnels covering an area of 18,000 m². The tunnels, which are quite wide (for this type of artefact), are located at a depth of about 10 m and run for a total length of about 700 m.
