Description

The Catacombs of St Callixtus (in italian "Catacombe di San Callisto") are one of the largest and most important of Rome. Discovered in the mid second century, they took their name from the deacon St Callistus. They are part of a cemetery complex covering 15 hectares, with a network of tunnels stretching across almost 20 km on different levels, and in some areas up to 20 meters deep. Dozens of martyrs were buried in the catacoms of St Callixtus including 16 Popes and many other Christians.
