  • The mausoleum was built almost certainly during the Imperial age approximately in the first century a.d., just outside the city walls of ancient Capua along the Appian way. The monument was, in the mid-19th century (certainly after 1839), edited by means of removing the original entrance and construction in place of the chapel of Santa Maria della Libera. The monument is a plant with elliptical, with the major axis in position perpendicular to the roadway, and with an external and one internal annular cylindrical body. As demonstrated by some representations from the last two centuries it is buried at a much lower level compared to road transport. It is hypothesized that this subterranean structure, or at least the burial chamber, it ended below street level because of the various sopralevazioni and floor coating layers. Above a wide Tuff delimited cocciopesto stand stands the first level built in opus reticulatum. The lateral surface is decorated with columns resting on plinths topped with immensely.

  • Yes located on the Appian way and as soon as the structure you see speaks for itself also if can appear cold and dismal.
