Touring Catacombs of San Gennaro
The Catacombs of San Gennaro, are arranged on two non-overlapping levels.
Both characterized by much larger spaces than the more famous Roman catacombs.
This is due to the malleability and resistance of the tuff, today divided into lower catacomb and upper catacomb.
According to the historical reconstruction, they were born as the sepulcher of a rich Roman family who then donated them to the Christian community.
The elements that most characterize the upper catacomb are the small “crypt of the bishops” and the majestic “basilica maior” (a real underground basilica).
The first, located near the tomb of San Gennaro where some of the first Neapolitan bishops were buried.
The second is the result of an extensive transformation of the nearby rooms carried out when, in the V century, San Gennaro was transferred.
