  • In the Centre of stampace, to the right of the Church of Santa Restituta, descending several steps you reach this place full of charm and mystery. In the late-Punic was a quarry of limestone blocks, then place of worship, deposit of amphoras and then abandoned to be reused as a place of worship. In the 17th century was rediscovered and emptied of equipment that filled him in time. The large central room accessed by a staircase are connected to other smaller but still large. On the main altar is a marble statue of Santa Restituta, whose relics were discovered in 1614 by Bishop Francisco Desquivel. During World War II the hypogeum was reused by People as a refuge to escape the bombing. Nice to see!

  • This is a very very old crypt, completely different to the one in the Cathedral. It is more like a cave with a few dark passages that you can walk down but they lead nowhere. It is quite damp and eeri...  more »

  • The Church of Saint Restituta is not desecrated, it underwent renovations and will soon be entrusted to the Orthodox religious functions.

  • The Church of santa restituta, today Deconsecrated, rises above the crypt and jail of santa, North African origin, and that tradition has mother of St. Eusebius, Bishop of vercelli. The crypt is a natural underground, partly dug into the rock, used by man since ancient times. It has more rooms, some of which are used as cisterns, and which were used as a place of worship since the early years of Christianity. There is a column, to which was tied the Holy before his martyrdom, a fresco from the Byzantine era, the only one that remains, and various niches with sketches of altars. The crypt was used during the second world war as an air-raid shelter. In front of it, one morning in February of 1943 were killed 50 people from anglo American bombing. A plaque placed at the exterior of the Church recalls this episode
