  • and an archaeological site great in the evening becomes evocative and magical. could be improved and was, unfortunately local authorities are really lacking. I was there for a jazz concert that obviously the context made it magical.

  • Complex of basilicas unique to the early Christian period. Well worth the trip, even as an experience of faith. Thanks Umberto (the keeper) to the exquisite hospitality, friendship and brotherhood demonstrated.

  • A journey back in time. A charming place that deserves more care, attention and promotion. I think it is poorly run. Low maintenance, little indication, absence of staff who controls and provide information. It's a little gem that is well worth a visit.

  • One of the most beautiful examples of early Christian art. Seven basilicas on which stands the temple dedicated to Saint Felix. Not to be missed.

  • Basilicas in Campania and fate during the persecution in Cimiterium of a Roman villa North of Nola: CIMITILE. Tomb of San Felice, humbly on the ground the Bishop Meropio Pontius Anicius Paulinus (Paolino). This prestigious exponent of the Senatorial class, originally from Bordigala (modern Bordeaux) in Gaul, settled at the tomb of St Felix, dedicating himself to the restoration of existing buildings and the construction of a new basilica (basilica Nova) and housing for the monastic community he founded for pilgrims. Thanks to this man from immense culture Cimitile became a major religious centers of Christianity and pilgrims flocked from all over the world. He did expand the House that contained the burial of happy and the first Christian basilica erected by NOLA. The Christian churches have installed where were the temples of the gods, but if it looks good you understand that some symbols have Etruscan soul and this goes for all the figures have changed over time, these signs apotropaic exorcism for the death of the soul is deeply equal, time is not spent is quite marked in the stones, the Atlas , an ogre, a rose window that has the same value as a mirror. The snake, the mermaid are recurrent symbols and remained deep in the soul of the community of pages that remained deeply loyal, the Roman world is passed as ancillary and re-appeared after a Millennium, but not by magic. Cimitile, vulgarization of cemeterium, was a Christian Necropolis, where he soon joined 2 important basilicas, dating from the 4th, 5th century, they are fairly well preserved and have the full charm of the ruins only partly refinished. The basilica of St Felicei was built by the vesovo of Nola San Paolino in the 5th century, it is located on the north side of the basilica of San Felice, was with three naves with 11 columns and ended with a three-lobed apse. Unfortunately the floor remains lost and part of the Church was transformed in the basilica of San Giovanni, standing remain numerous and valuable relics, the monumental complex is to visit, it should be emphasized that voluntary associations are doing their utmost for the maintenance of the site, which belongs to the Diocese of Nola.
