  • The complex of besiliche paleocristriane of Cimitile, near Nola is an archaeological stratification dating back at least to the 3rd century. C. When this place existed a temple dedicated to Hercules, then there arose a necropolis and here in the 3rd century. a.d. vi was buried San Felice. Soon the basilica built on the mausoleum of the Saint became too small for the crowds of faithful who came to pray at his grave, whereby in the 5th century Saint Paulinus of Nola did expand and thus became one of the most important places of worship and pilgrimage of antiquity. The status of the basilicas at present is not the best, the complex is a small museum, are readable still in fairly good condition some frescoes and preserves an ancient furnace that would be the one of the famous miracocolo of San Gennaro coming out unscathed and with the vestments intact from this furnace (miracle immortalized in the famous painting of Ribera in the chapel of the Cathedral of Naples). So place in history. of faith and beauty still very off the traditional tourist circuits

  • The complex consists of several buildings of worship, dedicated to santi Felice, Stephen, Thomas, Calionio, John, to the martyrs and our Lady of the angels. Old buildings date back to the fourth century and the heyday of the complex is between the end of the 4th century and the beginning of the fifth, when St. Paulinus of Nola retired as a monk, just before becoming Bishop. The complex was badly damaged by a disastrous flood in the first half of the century, but he recovered soon until it became a famous shrine. At the beginning of the 18th century the eastern part of the Church of San Felice was demolished in order to build a new parish church. In the 19th century the sanctuary experienced a long period of neglect and between 1933 and 1960 was subjected to lengthy and complex excavation and restoration, resumed and continued after the 1988 up to present day. The whole complex consists of the following buildings: the Basilica of San Felice; Basilica nova, built by s. Paolino between 401 and 403; Basilica of St. Stephen; Basilica of s. Thomas; Chapel of Saints Martyrs; Chapel of Saint Calionio; Chapel of St. Mary. The complex is enriched by numerous archeological finds conserved in the adjacent Museum.

  • A set of fundamental importance for archaeology, art history, history of religions. A site on early Christian, medieval and modern testimonies were stratified. Far from the tourist circuits, deserves more attention nationally and internationally. Only 4 euro ticket price, really ridiculous. Only downside: those arriving by car, finding nearby parking is not easy.

  • The way I see it the place is valued because it seems that it is followed quite a ten to the person who made us by Cicero------we drop a veil on the education of those who live around the site that invite you to put the car in no parking hyping the fact that firefighters do their work

  • Great system, unfortunately very unkempt. Unfortunately, the plant is apparently barely maintained and is slow but sure decay left. It is historically extremely valuable, but one not exploits for themselves. As there is only a piece of paper. The artifacts are hardly signposted, total nevertheless recommended. You should read much about the complex before there is unfortunately little information on-site.
