Some places to visit

  • Mithraeum of Housesteads

    The Housesteads Mithraeum is an underground temple, now burried, discovered in 1822 in a slope of the Chapel Hill, outside of the Roman Fort at the Hadrian's Wall.

     
  • Mithraeum of Tienen

    The temple contained hundreds of ceramic vessels and animal bones, which may indicated that a grand Mithraic feast was celebrated before its closing.

     
  • Mithraeum of Dura Europos

    The most emblematic of the Syrian Mithraea was discovered in 1933 by a team led by the Russian historian Mikhaïl Rostovtzeff.

     
  • Mithraeum of Bourg-Saint-Andéol
