  • The catacomb of Generosa is open once a month, upon authorization of the Pontifical Commission for Sacred Archaeology, organized by the Comitato catacombs of Generosa, Association of volunteers who for almost half a century is responsible for the promotion and protection of this place. Guided tours are free of charge and with no need to book. The site is generally closed to the public and opens only on select days from the calendar, available on the site and on the Facebook page of Committee catacombs of Generosa. Catacomb small but extremely interesting. To visit!

  • This set of catacombs is historically associated with the martyrs SS Simplicius, Faustinus and Beatrice -the "Portuensian Martyrs". A 4th century church dedicated to them stood here, and scanty ruins of it survive. Mass is celebrated on the altar in the basilica ruins on 29 July, which is the feast-day of the martyrs. It is also occasionally celebrated for pilgrim groups. When suburban development began of the area in the Fifties, a group of parishioners of what is now "Santa Maria del Rosario ai Martiri Portuensi" took an interest. This group became the present "Comitato di Catacombe Generosa". They were able to protest against any development threatening the site, and in 1965 were able to conduct their first guided tour of the catacombs. These continue to the present day, about once a month. The entrance to the catacombs is towards the end of the Via delle Catacombe di Generosa, which is a dead-end street. If you are visiting privately, drive down this until you see a car park on your left. You should be able to find a space here. Just before the car park is a free-standing two-storey house with its frontage very near the street, and next to this is a derelict little building. In between the two is a narrow footpath without a sign, which leads to the grassed area containing the catacomb site. The car park concerned is for the local residents, so it is requested that not more than one vehicle come here at any one time -and no coaches.
  • Few people know that the area between Magliana and Portuense is an archaeological site. The catacombs of the Portuensian martyrs are now the subject of interest from the municipality and the place has recently been cleaned up. To visit them contact the Catacombs Committee of Generous and make an appointment.
