  • A piece of history in our city that should be more valotizzato is to be included in the visit to our city

  • Place full of charm, an unexpected surprise ... We have fantastic sites and little known to the general public, people go flowers from Italy and does not see our treasures.

  • This is the most famous and best preserved Mithraeum and especially portrays the tauroctomia using a fresco on the rock face and not on marble slabs as found more commonly. A place that will Naveen directly at the dawn of Christianity religion with whom Mithras shares almost everything and the mere fact that he was a mysterious ritual and especially banned women prevented today was one of the three monotheistic religion. I recommend you check them out in a more absolute.

  • 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 €.

  • Fascinating and still very mysterious ... only fresco of Mithras present in Italy ... not to be missed.

  • 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.
