  • For a brief visit. This monument underground testament to the cult of Mithras, God Iranian, within the Roman culture. The fresco with the bull albino testament to the strength of the mythos, since Europe removed until St Matthieu.

  • I struggled to see this wonder ... Unfortunately the signs in town are full of gaps for us Italians ... I don't imagine the difficulties we may encounter an alien ... in view of the road conditions (absence of sidewalks and nursing on the estate of the streets) ... Fortunately the site is truly a marvel, well maintained and great in its uniqueness. Deserves more shine ... We hope you find its splendour in the ranking of sites to visit ... not to be missed

  • The mithraeum of Santa Maria Capua Vetere is one of the most important mithraeums were erected in the world. It is located near the amphitheatre campano and the Archaeological Museum of ancient Capua. Since December 2014 the Museum, the amphitheatre and the mitreo are passed to the Polo museale della Campania. The mithraeum was accidentally discovered in 1922, during the excavation for the construction of a building.

  • The cult of Mithras was mysterious, reserved to the initiated, very important to the Empire but mysterious why not public and then blown away by the arrival of Christianity. Find a testimony so important is very rare, but with his own material that explain why inside there is nothing that helps and still needs a restoration that preserves, the environment is damp and difficult to access. Although everything is so exceptional that fully deserves 5 stars.

  • Ancient sacrificial cult. Located below street level. With frescoes and sacrificial tubs. Going down in the underground of Santa Maria c.v.,. explore magnificent places. It is supposed that this place could reach the magnificent Roman amphitheatre.

  • 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.
