Some places to visit

  • Mitreo de Carminiello ai Mannesi

    The Mithraeum of Carminiello ai Mannesi was installed in two rooms of a 1st century BC domus.

  • Mitreo Sacellum delle Tre Navate

    The Mithraeum in the Chapel of the Three Naves was not linked to the cult of Mithras until recently because of a mosaic showing a pig, in the belief that it was an animal unfit for consumption in a temple of Eastern origin.

  • Mitreo delle terme di Mitra

    The Mithraeum of the terms of Mithras takes its name from being installed in the service area of the Baths of Mithras.

  • Mithraeum of Mackwiller

    The Mackwiller Mithraeum was built in the middle of the 2nd century, during the reign of Antoninus the Pious, on the site of a spring already worshipped by the natives.
