This accessible tour will lead you to the discovery of the Catacombs of Priscilla, situated in Via Salaria in Rome, are located in a quarry that was used for burials, during Roman times.

Some of the walls and ceilings are finely decorated, and they display Biblical scenes. The Catacombs of Priscilla contain many wall paintings representing Saints and early Christian symbols. There is also a chapel, named “Greek Chapel”, which is a square chamber. It hosts an arch, on which you can find 3rdcentury frescoes displaying Old and New Testaments scenes. Above the apse, there is a representation of the Last Judgment. Right next to it you’ll find Madonna and the Child and the Prophet Isaiah.

Originally, inside the Catacombs, there was a series of underground burial chambers; the most important ones are the “Arenarium” or sand-quarry, the Cryptoporticus (an underground area to get away from the summer heat), and the hypogeum, hosting the tombs of the Acilius Glabrio’s family. The noblewoman Priscilla, a member of this family, gave her permission for the Church to use this building. The Catacombs have been entitled to Priscilla, in memory of her, since she is considered as a benefactor of the Christian community in Rome.
