  • Within the urban structure of the city, you have to look for it, but when you find it is a surprise and rich story in pictures of cults and pagan sacrificial traditions, from which something was taken later by Christianity. Descending a few steps you are in a dark cave with a barrel vault, blood drains tubs and a wonderful fresco in which Mithras sacrificing the bull by cutting his throat. On the walls remain fragments of Roman frescoes, very interesting. Combined ticket with the amphitheatre. Not to be missed!

  • Not far from the amphitheatre campano and included in the ticket is useful to visit the Mithraeum to brush up or learn about this ancient mysterious cult and esoteric. Get information on opening hours and days.

  • Discovered by chance is a true masterpiece of Roman times. Definitely the most beautiful sight in Santa Maria Capua Vetere who alone is worth a visit.

  • One of the most incredible places of ancient history that you can visit. A place that I fear I remember vividly the sense of disquiet and mystery that evokes, in addition to the excellent state of preservation. But the biggest mystery is how come this place, which is the most important thing in the world, is so little mithraeum promoted by who runs it, that is, the museums of the region of Campania.

  • Mithraeum discovered by accident in 1922 during an excavation for the construction of a building. Features vaulted ceilings and skylights. Would need more maintenance, among other things is little known and valued, but well worth a visit. I discovered by accident by paying the ticket to enter the amphitheatre campano 2.50 €.

  • The most beautiful mithraeum today rediscovered
    View original
  • The mithraeum, found by chance in 1922, dates back to the late 2nd century AD and was the place of worship consecrated to the god Mithras, ancient goddess of Persian origin. the archaeological site is attached to the Ancient Capua archaeological museum located nearby. In order to access it you have to go to the Museum and ask that you open the mithraeum. Absolutely to visit as there are beautiful murals depicting the god Mithras and a starry sky. It is not easy to figure out where is the site. I have taken the position exactly outside the entrance. The visit is possible by paying the ticket of euro 2.50 which includes:-Anfiteatro Campano (second only to the Coliseum); -Archaeological Museum Ancient Capua; -Mithraeum.
