  • The mithraeum is a charming and interesting in itself, but to the leaders of the Consortium "clouds" (which collaborate with the archaeological complex) who welcomed us and causing us to completely submerge in the history, the visit was beautiful. The place really deserves, I recommend you bring comfortable shoes, especially if you choose in full path (Museum and Amphitheater). The complete tour requires at most one morning, but so worth it, it really is very inexpensive. A big thank you for this beautiful experience we would definitely stay at summer for events offered by the site. Cultural Association Areté

  • Found by chance during excavation, we are lucky to see nowadays an outstanding venue dedicated to the god Mithras, where they started young. Fascinating that still sees and perceives, should begin renovations in order to maintain and enhance this legacy. The visit to the archaeological museum is already very interesting and with the same ticket clerks will accompany you and explain that too. Nice to know that many foreigners occurred to visit it, and then let's go we Italians!

  • We have reached the mithraeum accompanied by a custodian of the Museum, the site is closed and open only by reservation. After descending the stairs you will reach a junction that does make out little by little wonder that you encounter. Around the corner you are in a place perhaps unique in the world, where they have been preserved almost intact the memories of an ancient pagan worship and mithraism. On the walls are still visible the frescoes that adorned the Hall is at the bottom in all its beauty, the scene of the killing of the white bull that fertilizes the universe. The paintings are well preserved, especially the figures on the sides and the bull, the central figure was slashed in the face when the Christian religion prevailed throughout the Roman Empire. Also impressive are the lines on the wall that delimited the levels of initiation that the faithful could aspire. Enchanted place is lost in time, with its art and history and I hope it stays that way for a long time yet.

  • 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.
